Product Details

Gold Space Shuttle: 8.36 Grams of 90% Gold (.24187 oz).
Congress approved legislation authorizing this medal; the bill was signed by President Reagan on March 12, 1986, becoming Public Law 99-295. The authorizing law specified that 10 percent of the revenue from sales was to go to the Young Astronaut Council's annual budget. The medals' obverse design was chosen from more than 17,000 entries submitted by YAC student members from across the country. Designed by Brian Kachel, then 12, of Jersey City, N.J., it features a space shuttle in flight. The design was sculptured by Mint sculptor-engraver Chester Y. Martin. The obverse design incorporates the inscriptions LIBERTY and the year 1988. The reverse, designed by Robert Ahlcrona, features a right-facing eagle, with its wings spread, perched on top of the Young Astronauts Program logo surrounded by stars. The inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and YOUNG ASTRONAUTS are incorporated into the design. Not often available!
