Winco International is producing a new series of official NASA medallions in celebration of the 50th anniversaries of the Apollo missions. Each medallion is minted with flown-to-the-moon Apollo command module metal and materials used in the engineering of the Mars Curiosity rover.

The Apollo 11 and Apollo 13 medallions were previously issued with their own mission-specific packaging. Beginning with the Apollo Program medallion (pictured below), the future issues will share a common backing card.

So the obverse is different for those that collect all coins. Be adding to collection.

These are now available on eBay and the Space Store. Maybe elsewhere.

There are now Apollo 15 and Apollo 16 50th anniversary medals available, at least on eBay.
