NASA "Space Shuttle Atlantis" limited edition medal

A new Kennedy Space Center Official Commemorative medallion has been minted to celebrate the legacy of space shuttle Atlantis.

The "Home of Space Shuttle Atlantis" medallion "contains metal flown on a space shuttle mission."

Created by Winco Intl., the medallion will only be available through the Kennedy Space Center Exchange Store and Visitor Complex, as well as Johnson Space Center's Exchange Store and Space Center Houston.

Do you know if there will be similar medallions for Endeavour, Discovery, and Enterprise?

Winco is working on and hopes to have a flown metal medallion to commemorate each shuttle at each display location in the not too distant future.

How to order from the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex (TheSpaceShop.com)

To order this commemorative medal from the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, please reference item no. 988. The per medallion price is $12.99 plus shipping and handling ($5.95 domestic).

The preferred ordering method is online through The Space Shop's website. This medallion is not pictured on the site, but if you place an order for another product (such as this), note in the comment field you want item no. 988 instead and it will be sent to you.

(Note: to avoid any further confusion going forward, this topic has been culled back to remove the earlier mention of an incorrect item no. and price.)

That's an excellent suggestion. Has this been suggested to Winco? Just passing along the thought.

Regarding Enterprise, Dryden has produced a medal, but not one indicating its display location as for the Atlantis one.

I just wanted to let you know, that after ordering what was thought to be the wrong medals (the $5.99 ones), KSC actually sent me the correct ones. And yes charged me accordingly. Thanks to who ever corrected the situation.

I'll pass. No way I'll pay 150% of medal price for postage ($19). And it doesn't say if it comes with a support stand.

I think you can thank Robert for straightening out the coin issue. Thanks again Robert! By the way, no stand was included into the order.

It won't help you in the EU, but that is why I went with one of the eBay scalpers, I paid $19.95 total including postage, which wasn't that bad a deal if that's all you want...

ShopNASA.com, Johnson Space Center's employee exchange store, now has the medal available for $12.
The medallion representing Atlantis, which is currently on display at Kennedy Space Center, is the first in a series of medallions to officially commemorate the historic space shuttles and their final locations for public display. Similar shuttle flown metal commemorative medallions are planned for the other locations that exhibit Space Shuttles. We anticipate a series of 5 medallions including one for each of the last space flight shuttles, Atlantis, Discovery and Endeavour, one for Enterprise and another for JSC's upcoming 747/Space Shuttle exhibit.
