Mark J. R. writes: I have 9 medals given to me by my grandfather from the US space missions. Each coin has Spacecraft Medals, inc struck on the very bottom. They include medals from the Apollo, Mercury, and Gemini programs. I am wondering if they have any value or where I could learn more about them. They all appear to be of silver and are a little larger in size than an Eisenhower dollar. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.Â
I think these were minted by the Danbury or Franklin Mint. They contain about an ounce of silver each but I think these wonderful medals have much more value than that. Space memorabilia is popular and I think these medals had some official sanction. Save these for the future and enjoy.
