Above the Earth is the symbol Schirra chose for his call sign and that was painted on the side of his spacecraft by artist Cece Bibby. Next to it the anniversary dates. On the left is the Mercury 7 Astronaut Symbol and on the right is the gold US Astronaut Symbol. The Mercury capsule and orbital trajectory are represented by a turtle orbiting the Earth. Schirra was well known for his sense of humor. The question "Are you a turtle?" and it's colorful reply was one of Schirra's famous "gotchas." The seven stars represent the Mercury 7 Astronauts. The name of the man we honor is at the bottom. The full Moon is included to pay homage to Schirra's contribution to accomplishing the goal set by President Kennedy. He was the only astronaut to fly Mercury, Gemini and Apollo spacecraft.
This commemorative is limited to 250 and has been authorized by the Schirra Family as a fundraiser for the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation. It will be presented in a folio along with the description and portrait of Schirra by Tim Gagnon.
