Frontiers of Flight Museum release
Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Apollo 7

The Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, Texas, the location of the Apollo 7 Command Module on loan from the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum, celebrates the 40th anniversary of Apollo 7's flight with a commemorative coin that includes an enameled representation of the original Apollo 7 patch.

As indicated by the lettering, the coin will contain metal from the Apollo 7 spacecraft; specifically, fragments of the reflective Kapton thermal tape covering and of a 16mm data acquisition cable. The metal fragments are graciously donated for this project by Mr. Jerry Czubinski of Houston, Texas, and documentation of the provenance of the metal fragments is on file at the Frontiers of Flight Museum. The coin will be 3mm thick and 39mm in diameter.

Of a limited edition of 500 numbered coins, 100 are being offered to the collectSPACE community for a limited time at $15 each plus 3.75 s&h. Orders must be received by 3:00 p.m. Central Daylight Time on September 9, 2008. Call (214) 350-1651 between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. CDT (1:00-5:00 Sundays) to place your order. Due to anticipated demand, orders are limited to two coins per household. The proceeds from the sale of these coins will go to support the education programs of the Frontiers of Flight Museum.

Sorry, we cannot accept orders for specific coin numbers.

collectSPACE is proud to be the sponsor for the creation of these commemorative medals, of which the majority will be presented as gifts to the attendees at a private luncheon celebrating the crew and mission of Apollo 7. Walter Cunningham will be the event's guest of honor, accompanied by many of his fellow Apollo astronauts, NASA Administrator Michael Griffin and other space program representatives. Although we could not include all our readers as guests at this very special event, we worked with the Frontiers of Flight to make the 100 medals available.

It would be fantastic if someone took the initiative to do a complete set of Apollo - Apollo Applications 40th anniversary flight medallions like this. What a set that would be!

I just got my medallion today, number 498. Now to figure out a cool way to display it. A big thanks to Jerry Czubinski, the Frontiers of Flight Museum, and collectSPACE for a very nice late birthday present.

It was my absolute pleasure, and the highlight of my custom minting career, to help Bruce, Farris, Frontiers of Flight and everybody associated with Apollo 7 in making this coin.

While working on this project, I have become a collector of any Apollo 7 medal that I can get my hands on. The collection is growing! But this particular coin is my absolute favorite.

I received my coin here in UK yesterday. It lived up to expectations and I would like to thank all who made it happen. The Frontiers of Flight Museum have set a shining example here and one which I would like to see others follow.

Particular thanks to Bruce Bleakley for the courteous way in which he has dealt with customers.

I too received my medallion yesterday. May I echo the comments above. As it's my birthday this week, it made a nice pre-birthday present (from me to me, with thanks to all involved).
