    Fifty bucks at the Rat Shack. (aka Radio Shack.)

    If you'd rather build your own, try SparkFun

    Here is a link to the rfid unit that thingmaker3 referred to on Radio Shack's website.

    Sadly, the details of the RFID transponder do not include the range but 25mm (approx. 1 inch) should not be a problem.
