One of the most photographed attractions along Route 66, the Gemini Giant was named after the Gemini space program and holds a silver rocket ship while wearing a space helmet that resembles a welding mask.

Nice start to a cool, US historical set

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I've had to drive long stretches of the Interstates that now travel the old Rte 66 trail...with some Twilight Zone experiences along the way. Look forward to getting the complete set of these and mounting with the old Rte 66 map, along with notes about weird things I've seen in the modern ghost towns where Interstate killed Rte 66 way stops. Very nicely done, thanks APMEX!

Road trip, here we come!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Can't wait to collect the other 7! Love the design, the case, and the history. I echo some other customers' request for a custom case as these will be hard to fit into Guardhouse boxes that I usually like to use and it would be a nice way to display them. The special box optimally would also have 2 extra spaces for the original Route 66 round (so reverse and obverse sides of that round could be displayed).

I just received this coin today and am eagerly looking forward to the other 7 in the series. I love the shape and the custom case that comes with. I hope by the end of the series there will be a presentation box in which to keep the set.
