Recall the excitement of the “space race,” with an official medal struck by the U.S. Mint for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. From April 21-October 21, 1962, the World’s Fair (Century 21 Exposition) hosted nearly 10 million visitors. Seattle’s iconic Space Needle was built for the event, and President Kennedy (America’s biggest champion for space exploration) took part by giving an opening day speech via phone! Now you can own the historic bronze medal issued to commemorate that event.
The obverse shows the Space Needle, while the reverse honors the vast reaches of outer space. Still in Brilliant Uncirculated condition after more than half a century, each medal has been graded by our experts and is certified and encapsulated by NGC. Just 40,000 were ever produced and our supply of these handsome medals is strictly limited. Add one to your collection today!
