Stunning artwork

I love the line quality of the art itself, and the craftsmanship of the coin. I look forward to
Your future releases.


I'm glad SP finally made the 'Remember to live' design into a wax stamp. As soon as I saw it, I didn't hesitate to add it to my collection and complement the 'Remember, you will one day die' seal purchased last year.

It really stamps the wax!

Solid design and stamp. Wax stood no chance. Love putting these on letters.

Couldn’t Be Happier

I was so excited when this seal became available that I ordered it as soon as I could and it didn’t disappoint! Like everything else I gotten from Shire Post Mint, the quality is impeccable. Each seal comes out beautifully detailed. An excellent purchase!

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.
