This official NASA medal is the very limited edition Mercury 40th anniversary medal. Only 2500 of these medals were struck and it contains metal from the launch pad used in the Mercury missions.
This Franklin mint silver medal shows the Mercury 6 space craft. Others from this series are in the Gemini and US unmanned medals pages.
Here we have a "Project Mercury Manned Space Flight" Alan B Shepard Mercury 3 medal from the "coin of the month club". It was supplied in a pouch saying Sterling silver, but this example looks to me to be cupra-nickel.
Here is a second "Project Mercury Manned Space Flight" coin of the month club. This one also appears to be cupra-nickel, and is issued to commemorate John Glenn Mercury 6 flight.
Larger than the two medals above, this attractive Project Mercury Friendship-7 medal features the Gemini 7 logo on the back and was made by Spacecraft Medals Inc in the USA.
From the Spacecraft Medals Inc series as the Friendship-7 medal above, this is the Project Mercury Sigma-7 medal.
This is a small bronze made for John Glenn's 1962 Frendship-7 flight.
This is a retrospective Charleston Mint medal commemorating John Glenn's Mercury 6 flight. It is marked "John F Kennedy Space Center"/"NASA" and is serialised "5034" which is the same as an Apollo 17 and Shuttle STS-1 medal on other pages. The Apollo 11 medal from the same series includes a COA.
