Atlantis STS-115 | NASA Mission Coin

leave a comment »

With the final mission on the Space Shuttle program upon us, I came across this STS-115 mission coin and thought it worthy of a post.  I am somewhat of a space memorabilia fan.  In fact I used to have a dealer save any space coins they bought for me, good thing silver has gone so high!  That was long ago, but I will always have a fascination with the space race of the sixties.  How great would it be to have a Mercury Dime or a Peace Dollar that actually had flown in space.  While these haven’t been in orbit, you can pick up one of these bronze coins from the Kennedy Space Center.
