The medallions, to be minted in silver and bronze, also display the 14-bis, ISS and Soyuz on one side with the image of a spacewalking astronaut on its reverse. The phrase, "1║ v˘o brasileiro no espašo" (1st Brazilian flight into space) also appears. The coins will be available to collectors for R$ 135,00 bronze ($61 US) and R$ 185,00 silver ($84 US).
