Medallion is a Gemini 4 capsule with “50 years Gemini 4 Commemorating America’s Historic First Space Walk 1965,2015”
The capsule has a circular addition with Ed White’s photo and the caption “Extra Vehicular Activity June 3, 1965”

On June 3, 1965, during the trail blazing Gemini 4 mission, astronaut Ed White became the first American to walk in space. At 3:45 p.m. EDT, White opened the hatch and used the hand-held maneuvering oxygen-jet gun to push himself out of the capsule. His Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA) started during the third orbit and lasted 23 minutes. This EVA paved the way for the first men to walk on the moon, and for the International Space Station’s construction and maintenance. Commander Jim McDivitt stayed inside to photograph these epic moments in U.S. space history.
