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.
