The GRAIL ULA medallion does not contain flown metal, but rather material from the launch complex (as noted by the inscription, "Minted with metal from SLC-17").

As a related aside, ULA medallions are minted prior to launch.

Robert — my mistake, you are correct, should have said blended metal, not flown. Still a nice coin.

Jason, these ULA medallions sure in demand. I got the WGS-7 yesterday, really thought you were going to get the IIf-10 today, had avoided bidding on it today. Surprised it went that high.

Patrick, as much as I really wanted them I had to walk away, but I tried.

My wife wouldn't exactly be thrilled either!

WOW. Nice finds Jason! I really like the Atlas V RBSP. Been awhile since seen any on eBay, but I keep looking.

Nice! Got the generic version of the Parker Solar Probe coin, but was wondering if ULA would put out their own. Been awhile since I have seen any up for auction.

Been trying to get find them, both ULA and the "generic" ones and missed out on them. I know there's two other ones that follow closely the JHU APL patch and 45th Space Wing patch.

Do you have any extras?

I came across a new ULA coin for their perfect product delivery (the coin is listed on eBay).

While not technically a ULA medallion, the "End of an Era - Delta II" medallion for the flight today (Sept. 15), really nice looking.

Picked up an Atlas V MUOS-4 and Delta IV GPS-IIf3 medallion yesterday. First had seen in a while.
