Wally Byam Commemorative Coin

Look what I got for Christmas.
My son found this in a box he had saved of his Grandad's stuff. He gave it to me for Christmas.

On the face it has a likeness of Wally and the following wording:
Wally Byam - Airstream Founder and World Traveler

On the obverse:
1776 - 1976
Celebrate the American Bicentennial
Go Airstream for a better life, more independence and the greater pursuit of happiness.

It appears to be made of aluminum.

It was probably obtained at the 1976 International Rally in Louisville, KY
