Aztec Sun Stone Calendar - Copper Worry Coin

$20.00

A pocket-sized artifact...

  • Solid Copper - 32 g
  • 1.52 in (3.9 cm) diameter
  • antiqued patina

This coin is engraved after the Aztec Sun Stone, a representation of the five eras of the sun from Aztec mythology. After the Spanish conquest, the monolithic sculpture was buried in the Zócalo, the main square of Mexico City. It was rediscovered on 17, December 1790 during repairs on the Mexico City Cathedral.

This heavy copper worry stone feels good in the hand and the pocket. The thick copper coin blank is pre-tumbled before minting for a smooth edge and then given an antiqued finish.

Each Sun Stone coin comes in its own wax-sealed packaging with facts about the art of the Sun Stone, a substantial artifact that gives us a better understanding of the historically significant Aztec peoples. 

Vintage design.

Really solid coin

I bought the Aztec coin because it had one of the coolest artwork on it. I love the lines and grooves of the Aztec calendar. It’s a great flipper but I took it even further and was able to force patina the one side to establish a heads and tales (which turned out great). 10/10 would recommend Shire Post Mint. Even the packaging was amazing and well thought out.

Another stunning SPM original

Shire Post Mint: Come for the fantasy tie-in coins, stay for the awesome own-brand originals!
This is another superb SPM coin, with amazing amounts of detail in the engraving work and that, as with all their coins, feels truly authentic. A thing of beauty I am delighted to have in my collection from the original and best home of fantasy coinage.

Not worrying anymore

I received my Sunstone as part of a two-piece promotional set with a silver moon coin. I was instantly impressed with the level of detail it displayed. I had to snap a picture of it blocking out the sun, but the sun’s glare from the camera lens lit the coin’s face in a definitely-not-creepy sort of way.

Stunning Interpretation of the Aztec Sun Stone

I'm grateful this masterpiece isn't available in silver yet, or I'd have to spend for one of those too!

You must buy one of these for the fiery Aztec princess in your life.

BTW, this coin fits quite well in the 40.6 mm "Air Tite" capsule (as do the Silver/Copper/Brass Super Moons).

Nice coin

This Aztec Sun Stone coin has a good heft and a clear impression from stamping on both sides. An interesting design and nice to handle.

Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.
