Got mine today. Absolutely stunning. The picture doesn't do it justice!

Very happy to hear there are more mission medallions planned!

My two medallions arrived today. Very high quality, really impressive and great value.

But (and perhaps I'm missing something), are those "protective plastic cases" not meant to open? I've already broken a nail trying to open them, in both cases without success. My wife couldn't open them either. Surely you must be able to access the medallions, if only to touch metal that's been on the Moon? A "case" should, by definition, open, shouldn't it?

Its very easy to pop open the coin case.

You just need to get a sharp knife and lay the main length of the blade in the groove where the two halves of the case meet.

Then rotate the knife keeping it horizontal and the case will pop open.

Thanks, I'll try that when I get home - but if I lose a thumb, you'll be hearing from my lawyer!

My medallion arrived today - what can I say other than it is absolutely stunning.

The design is magnificent and really jumps out at you, would definitely recommend the medallion to anyone. Very professional job.

Success! I managed to open them - and I didn't need to ask any grownups!

Seriously, these medallions are beautiful.

I received my medallion last week. It is a very nice coin. Is there any updates on future flown medallions?

Glad you liked the medallion.

The next in the series will be Apollo 12 but will be a month or two until it is ready.

Will the future Apollo 12 medallion have another checklist ring melted into them?

Yes the release of the Apollo 12 medallions will be announced in the Moonpans email newsletter. To sign up there is a link on our homepage.

Most probably there will be a run of 2000 once again.

Yes, the Apollo 12 Medallions will contain metal from flown (to Lunar Orbit) checklist rings.

The Apollo 17 medallions contain metal from rings flown to the lunar surface, but the Apollo 12 medallions will contain metal from rings flown to lunar orbit.

I was wondering if there's an update available on the Apollo 12 medallion?

The Apollo 12 medallions are now in production and are looking fantastic. They should be ready for sale in a few weeks time.

As usual, we will announce them to our mailing list members as soon as they are ready.

Can't wait to see (buy) it. Out of curiosity do you plan on doing the other missions?

Yes we are hoping to release medallions from all the Apollo missions, however it is very difficult to obtain suitable flown metal from each mission, that the minting factory will allow to be used in the minting process.

The Apollo 12 medallions are done and are close to going on sale. There are just a few things we need to do before they will be put up on our site.

We will be tweeting previews of the Medallion on our Twitter feed, so if you have not already signed up, please follow us.

Received my Apollo 17 medallion within the past week - thanks Mike! It's nice to see where the metal that was incorporated in the medallion came from.

Mike, I checked out your twitter page and the medallion will make a very nice addition to the collection. When will they be available for order and what part of Apollo 12 did the metal come from?
