PHILATELIC NUMISMATIC COVERS/SPECIAL PRESENTATIONS
Here we see two versions of the same presentation. On the left is a special limited edition American Mint Inc (AMI) easel folder with first day cover and special small bronze medal (issued 1969). The medal is a smaller version to the giant AMI medal of the same design pictured on the medals page (qv).
Pictured on the right is the regular version of the same American Mint Inc easel folder with first day cover and information card.
|One of the earliest PNCs made is this Apollo 11 issued by the 99 Company. These PNCs were individually serialized.
|This is th Apollo 12 PNC from the 99 Company who apparently were the first to combine medals within first day covers.
|Here is a 20th anniversary Apollo 7 PNC featuring a medal made from metals flown in space. This comes from a set (see "flown items" link for complete set) and was limited to 2000 covers.
|From the same series as the flown cover above, is this Apollo 8 20th anniversary PNC featuring a medal made from metals flown in space. Production was limited to just 2000 covers.
|This Apollo 11 PNC features a medal made from metals flown onboard an undisclosed space flight. It, like all the others in the set, is limited to just 2000 covers made.
|Here is another Apollo 11 PNC from the same series featuring a medal made from metals flown in space. This one was issued to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. It is also limited to just 2000 covers made.

|Here we have another of the flown metal medal PNCs. Like the others in this series, the space flight featured on the cachet is not necessarily the same as that from which the medal was struck. This 15th anniversary of Apollo 15 PNC is again limited to just 2000 covers.
|One of the more unusual items on this page, but one of the nicest, is this 1974 "World Mint" one ounce pewter replica of the Apollo 15 stamp.
