From the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex (KSCVC):
Guests at Atlantis - Celebrate the Journey will receive a limited edition commemorative coin...

Just got one of these medallions and was wondering the story behind it. Thought craftsmanship too good for just a retail coin.

Indeed, it was just a souvenir, but for a very high profile event that drew a very large audience.

The design is very detailed and superb quality. I was wondering if there is a medallion of the same or similar design that omits the rollover verbiage? It would be a great addition to the collection along with a great memento of our visit to Kennedy Space Center this past summer.

I am unaware of any variations on the pictured medallion.

There is a medallion of different design for the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit.
