MEDALS

This is an example of the limited edition Manned Flight Awareness medal mounted on a named presentation page commemorating the Apollo Soyuz mission.

"This medallion contains metal from both Apollo and Soyuz that joined together in the first International manned space mission on July 15-24, 1975"

This is a large (60mm diameter) Soviet bronzed aluminum medal commemorating the Apollo Soyuz mission.
From the Paul Weitz collection this heavy 60mm diameter, Bronze medal was presented to the Astronaut on a visit to the Soviet Union.
This set of six Soviet medals contain flown metal for a 1975 mission (not sure if its from the actual ASTP mission). The five Cosmonauts / Astronauts each have a medal and the sixth medal being Leonov`s artwork `Handshakes in space`.
This medal is typical of Soviet heavy bronzes made at the time. Some medals are serialized indicating a mintage of up to 10,000. Apparently fake gold versions of this medal are also in existence.
Pictured here is a Medallic Arts Company Apollo Soyuz bronze medal in the standard large heavy style of other MACO medals. This is a larger version of the one featured in the Fleetwood PNCs (qv).
