This Apollo 12 commemorative medal was struck by the Lincoln Mint. Apollo 12 was launched on November 14, 1969, and returned to Earth ten days later. It was the sixth human spaceflight and the second lunar landing in the Apollo program. Charles Conrad, Jr., Richard Gordon, Jr., and Alan Bean were the astronauts.
