Moonpans' website indicates that 2500 Apollo 13 medallions were produced.

These Apollo 13 medallions are the latest in the series of Moonpans medallions containing flown to the moon metal. They measure 1.75 inch diameter and contain metal that flew to the moon onboard the Apollo 13 spacecraft.

The source for the flown metal that is minted into the medallions, comes from the rings that bound an Apollo 13 flown checklist.

The medallions were minted exclusively for Moonpans by space medallion specialists, Winco International. The total number minted is 2500.

Similar medallions were made for Apollo 12 and Apollo 17.

Anyone know if the same amount were produced for those missions as well? Are there any plans to commemorate Apollos 11, 14, 15 and 16?

Tom, the number of Apollo 12 and 17 medallions minted was 2000.

We do hope to produce more medallions for the other missions once we have found suitable flown metal.

I got the Apollo 17 medallion in (along with the Apollo 12 and 13 medallions) last week from Moonpans. They included a nice acrylic stand with each medallion.

Moonpans' Apollo 15 medallion is now available:
The medallions measures 1.75 inch diameter and contain metal that spent 3 days in Lunar Orbit inside Apollo 15 Command Module, Endeavour. The front depicts the Apollo 15 Emblem in a beautiful three dimensional render, with the rear showing Dave Scott returning from the First Lunar Rover used on the Moon close to Hadley Rille at Station 10.Both sides are rendered in 3D with a black enamel ring behind the text.

Limited edition of 2,500 pieces.

Ordered mine right away.

For my money, the Moonpans Medallions are the best I've seen. I like that the logo is big and in 3D. Plus the bronze-esque finish with the black enamel ring is just great.

I had thought about getting the Apollo 40th anniversary medallion set at one point. I'm so glad I held off and decided on the Moonpans instead.

Great job, Mike!

Received mine today. Very nicely done. Perfect complement to the others in the line. Look forward to many more.

A few years ago, Winco International released four medallions that contained flown material that flew on Apollo 12, 13, 15 and 17 respectively. Is there a reason why coins were never released representing Apollo 11, 14 and 16? Thank you very much.

I was talking with Mike from Moonpans and he indicated that we can expect an Apollo 11 medallion in this series in the near future.

What about Apollo 8 and Apollo 10 medals?

He didn't mention Apollo 8 and 10, just that Apollo 11 was being released next and that Apollo 14 and 16 would follow as soon as possible.

I should have said, are there any plans for an Apollo 8 or Apollo 10 medal?

Totally agree. These are really well done. Metal flown on the specific mission, excellent. Hope they get released soon.
