I recently purchased the Eastern Airlines' "Fifty Years of Service" Apollo 8/Frank Borman medallion and was wondering what size/shape coin capsule fits it? Would it be best going with a bullion (square) capsule?

If it helps, the medal is 3 inches wide, 2.5 inches tall and 0.25 inches thick.

Robert, thanks for the dimensions! Looks like a 3", 5oz coin capsule will work. I'll have to make a foam ring.
