America In Space Scientist On The Moon . . 1oz .925 Sterling Silver Round. The original series of 24 medals was minted exclusively for the men and women in the aerospace industry and also established Franklin Mint collectors. The face of each medal bears a sculptured design portraying one of the key events in the history of America in space. A distinguished board of advisers, who made space history, chose the subjects to be honored. The reverse briefly relates the history of the event portrayed. This Medal portrays Testing The Theory of Relativity on June 18th, 1976. In 1973, and again in 1976, additional medals (12 and 24 respectively) were made available to collectors of the first 24 medals. In 1977, a mini-coin collection containing the 60 designs previously minted was made available. Each mini-coin collection included a hardwood collector's case fitted with a transparent top. Each set of 12 medals contains 9.7 ounces.
