Edgar Rice Burroughs' Martian series has been on my reading list for a long while. When I get to it, I'm looking forward to having a tangible piece of the tale with this coin.
lovely quality , lightening fast processing and shipping ...Shire Mint will be a business we return to with confidence ..
The actual coin is smaller than the pictures make it look, but it's great and comes in a very nice collectors unit. I would recommend this work to fans of any of the series they have work for.
I got this as a birthday present for a huge Edgar Rice Burroughs fan. He was absolutely blown away by the item and loved it. It's very high quality with wonderful detail. The presentation envelope, which was personalized for my friend, was a welcome addition to the gift.
