This commemorative coin or medal depicts the second flight of the Space Shuttle Transport System and the Spacecraft Columbia. It was from November 12, 1981 to November 14, 1981. It thus marked the first time ever that a manned, reusable orbital spacecraft left the Earth for its second mission and returned to space.[2]
In the early planning stages of the Space Shuttle program, STS-2 was intended to be a Skylab reboost mission. However, delays with the shuttle's development, and the deteriorating orbit of Skylab, made the mission impossible. By the time STS-2 was launched, Skylab had long since de-orbited.[3]

Commander Joe Engle and Pilot Richard Truly were the crew that successfully launched, flew and landed the Columbia for STS 2.
