I recently found some beautiful old commemorative astronaut pins at a shop in Melbourne, can anyone here tell me about them?

Were these made by NASA themselves or were they done unofficially? Also, does anyone know if similar pins were made for the other Apollo missions after Apollo 11? I've found ones for the rest of the Mercury 7, but the only ones for the other Apollo missions I've found were of the insignias, not the political badge kind of look that mine have.

Any info you could share would be much appreciated! — Tom Diamond
