This official NASA Award Medallion was minted in recognition of all who played a vital role in supporting the historic Space Shuttle Program. In addition, this limited edition medallion commemorates the program's 135 missions during 30 years of innovation and service.
Metal castings were flown on a space shuttle mission and then included in production so each medallion would contain this special flown material. With an embedded insert of the official Space Shuttle Program Commemorative Design and a dramatic space shuttle launch dimensionally rendered in antique silver, this medallion is truly a keepsake that is worthy of the program it represents.
A circular, plastic presentation case protects each medallion.
