Not seen it before but it's clearly modern, from the late 1990s at the earliest.

I may be mistaken, but I believe this patch, along with others created for the Challenger and Columbia memorial hills on Mars, were made in 2004, around the time the hills were named.
Edited to add, they were not created by or for NASA, though they are based on NASA labeled imagery; strictly a commercial souvenir.
