According to the Franklin Mint, 4967 sets of the medals were issued that were thought to have contained silver that was carried around the moon. Upon learning that this was incorrect, the Mint recalled those sets and replaced them with sets that were minted from a special lot of silver that did contain metal that was flown around the moon. According to the Mint, 3698 of the sets were replaced.
A small horizontal line above the mintmark distinguished the replacement sets. Note however that the Franklin Mint never claimed that ALL of the silver in the medals was flown around the moon, or that the finished medals had been flown in space, just that the medals were struck from a lot that contained SOME silver that was flown.
