Be Good/Stay Evil Decision Maker
Don't Fret - Flip a Coin!
Can't decide if you are going to eat that entire cake that you found in the company fridge or clean the kitchen instead? Are you going to finally volunteer this weekend or stay home and continue watching television? Don't fret about the moral dilemma. Flip a coin! Stay free from guilt since your actions were governed purely by chance. We take no responsibility for the actions performed post flip. Unless it is awesome, then we take full credit.
This Be Good/Stay Evil Decision Maker is struck from solid copper, measures 3.5 cm in diameter, and weighs about 18.8 grams. Artwork by Michael Shantz and Woody Maringer.
The product is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two are exactly the same! Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with the coin.
Note—Each order comes packed with a handwritten envelope straight from Shire Post Mint. We will make this out to whomever is on the SHIPPING ADDRESS. If you are giving this as a gift and would like a different name on the envelope, please include the recipient's name in the Special Instructions field as you complete your order.

Once upon a time, a man would make his reputation based on the work of his hands, and his reknown would spread as people trusted his craftwork.
Then some lazy person figured out that you could make products automatically and with no flaws, and that soon diverged into pricing tiers based on global locations, and then someone else figured out if you simply charged more and had a sharp logo, people automatically assumed it was of better quality, even though it was made in the same factory as the cheaper product, thus the term 'masstege' was coined, where everyone flaunted their distinct individuality by wearing the same clothes and watches as everyone else.
And then 2020 happened, and ye gods, we're all living in hope and fear for what new horrors the rest of the year brings forth, hoping fervently that the Mayans didn't make a typo when they predicted the end of the world in 2012, and they actually meant 2021.
And should we progress to the next numeric sequence which is 20|21|22, being the 2nd Feb 2021, we realise with some dismay, it is Groundhog Day.
And we all know how *that* worked out.
However, this is not that story.
This is a story of a family of craftsmen (or craftswomen ? maybe its an inclusive plural as craftafam ?) who have a strong belief in their hardworking talents, and a savvy eye for marketing.
And so, stuck at home with no contact allowed with the human race, I ordered their snazzy decision makers, and promptly waited for them to arrive. And waited. In fact, I did so much waiting, all that was missing was a table.
Happily, almost two months to the day, the coins arrived, and there was Great Joy.
Though in hindsight, I could have picked a better time to order than in the middle of a global pandemic, so not really SPM's fault.
Onto the goods.
The gf *loves* hers, because its unique, an oddity and because it keeps landing on Nice, which usually elicts some smug comment. From her, not me.
Partly because I'm above such behaviour, but mostly because mine appears to be defective because it keeps landing on Stay Evil.
Glossing over the part where the coin talks to me in the middle of the night with crazy wild suggestions using the hedge trimmer, I'm slightly put out that there has been an assumption on my moral alignment - whaddya mean *stay* evil ? Huh huh huh ?
Anyway, they've been a big hit, and our friends think they're great, and keep trying to swipe them when we're not looking.
Additionally, I swear I've never had a better excuse for eating ice cream for breakfast and avoiding doing the washing up, than this.
And once the world opens up again, I'll be getting that 20m power cable, as the hedge trimmer just doesn't quite reach into the bedroom.
