Retired Lieutenant Colonel Michael Olson helped get legislation passed to have commemorative coins produced with themes of space and astronauts as a member of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee. He is also treasurer of the Astronauts Memorial Foundation. They have a program selling PCGS autographed coins signed by signed by astronauts like Fred Haise and Buzz Aldrin to benefit families of astronauts who have died in service to their country. Mike explains the program and to what collectors may look forward.

An excerpt of the video is available for viewing on the Coin Television YouTube Channel at:

David adds:

"The FUN Convention brings out all kinds of new issues and marketing efforts. This was a group that I was thrilled to help with a good video. I believe there is little in science as space exploration. This group helped to get the coins produced and then put them to good purpose."
