This is a great seal

I love the seal but have 2 suggestions. Would be nice to have a package deal and maybe a this time they have one. Also would like to see the reverse of the original coin as a stamp. To be clear though I am so happy with the product.

A Gorgeous Stamp

After getting all of the coins I had to add this to my collection as well! I love how detailed the seal is. An excellent addition to my stationary!


Great quality coins. I do with the Memento Vivere design would get the wax seal treatment to create a matched set.

Thanks for your feedback! We'll keep that in mind!

Bought as a Christmas Gift

I can't give the recipient's review of it yet but I was very pleased with the timeliness of the shipping. The Seal Coin was in a nice little burlap bag. I am sure that the gift will be most appreciated by my future daughter-in-law. This is my first purchase from Shire Post Mint and I hope to find other giftable items here.

Each order comes packed with a handwritten envelope sealed with wax straight from Shire Post Mint! Unless changed, we will hand write the name of the person listed in the Shipping Address.

If ordering a gift or if you'd like to customize your handwritten name, please include the recipient's name in the Personalization Options field as you complete your order.

One envelope is included in your order, if you would like to purchase additional handwritten Gift Envelopes, you can find them here.

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.

We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
