FM has just released the "Star Trek Intergalactic Cards."  
These are actually fully sculpted and minted ingots in pewter.  1/4 inch thick
and 3 X 5 in dimensions.  They are made at the FM in USA then sent somewhere to
have a special color tratment, not enamelled or painted.  They have found some
way to change the color of the metal by charging it or changing atomic make-up
just on the surface.  Not to sure about the process.

Comes with a display that allows you to stand them up.   The 1999 Calendar
medal in the new christmas catalog also uses this process for colors.

Each star trek ingot is $55.  A plain non-color version is also being tested at
the same price.  

Sounds neat.
