Thought it would be nice as a legacy for my Grandson for an Alien collection I am putting together for him.
It is thrilling to watch the OSIRIS-REx mission as it nears the culmination of its effort--the sample! This beautifully crafted and presented coin truly encapsulates a momentous event in our species' interaction with the universe around us.
