Nice piece, but...

The coin has good weight today and a solid design. However, I could barely see the meteorite piece in my coin - I almost though that it was not there for a moment.

Gift for Grandson

Thought it would be nice as a legacy for my Grandson for an Alien collection I am putting together for him.

A Piece of History

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.

I bought this as a Christmas gift and my husband loved it! A+ customer service too - I messaged them with a question prior to ordering, and they answered my question quickly AND made sure I was aware of an active coupon code.

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.
