After I had already ordered the OSIRIS-REx coin set. There was a program on PBS all about the OSIRIS-REx and the retrieval of specimens from an asteroid.
When I received the coin set, I was very impressed with the coins and the information provided. They are fine fit in my space coin collection.
Thank you
Sincerely

PS: With the importance of the mission. I was hoping the coins would be larger.

Get These Now Before OSIRIS-REx Returns!

At time of writing this, it's only been a few weeks since Bennu's surface was successfully TAGSAM sampled. So you have a few years before the sample is returned to Earth for study, potentially shedding new light on the formation of our solar system and our very existence. Get this coins now so you can celebrate with a tangible piece of galactic history. As with everything at SPM, they're beautifully crafted and well-presented.

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.
