Research suggests that the date ascribed to this medal is incorrect, and that the medal relates to the popular CBS television series Let's Take A Trip, which ran from 1955 to 1958. Anthony de Francisci had already collaborated with CBS on a program about medal making in 1954. Let's Take A Trip featured a changing cast of children who traveled with an adult moderator to scout jamborees, toy fairs, and meetings with President Eisenhower.
