One of four specially cast Robbins Medallions that are in Ryan van Barneveld's collection. They were made for the astronauts, their families and NASA employees that were aboard the Apollo moon missions. Although never used as movie props, Mr. van Barneveld says he wanted them because of the innovation and sense of adventure they represent. “I feel like I’m holding a piece of treasure. Rather than it being dug up from the ocean, it has come from space,” he says.

Fusenet co-founder and movie buff Ryan van Barneveld says he and his wife, Wendy, took a trip to Hawaii, rented a Jeep and set out to find the original shooting location for the entrance to Jurassic Park. "After more than an hour of driving on some of the roughest terrain in the rainforest," he says, "we found the location where the Jurassic Park gates once stood! The posts that held the gates were still on the site. It was an incredible feeling to find such a pivotal location from one of my favourite childhood films."
