The Sun and Moon Worry Coin - Aztec Sun Stone Calendar and Moon

$20.00

Worry-free day and night

  • Solid Brass - 26g
  • 1.52 in (3.9 cm) diameter
  • Antiqued patina

This coin is engraved after the Aztec Sun Stone, a representation of the five eras of the sun from Aztec mythology. After the Spanish conquest, the monolithic sculpture was buried in the Zócalo, the main square of Mexico City. It was rediscovered on 17, December 1790 during repairs on the Mexico City Cathedral.

The reverse features our Moon's surface texture at a geographically (technically it's selenographically) correct 91,196,160:1 scale.

This heavy brass worry stone feels good in the hand and the pocket. The thick brass coin blank is pre-tumbled before minting for a smooth edge and then given an antiqued finish.

Each Sun and Moon coin comes in its own wax-sealed packaging with facts about the art of the Sun Stone, a substantial artifact that gives us a better understanding of the historically significant Aztec peoples. 

Vintage Aztec Sun Stone design, Moon designed and engraved by Woody Maringer. Learn more about our artists.

The Sun and Moon Worry Coin - Aztec Sun Stone Calendar and Moon

The coin is a great size and very detailed. Feels good in the palm and feels great flipping it. The weight is evenly spread.

Nice weight and look

I'm really liking this coin. It's a nice weight, and the detailing is fantastic. I'm still trying to decide if I'll actually carry it as a worry coin or keep it on my desk as a decorative piece.

Best of both worlds

I love both the SPM moon coins and the Aztec calendar coins. I also like the dichotomy of the two. It makes me smile each time I pull it out of my pocket.

Great coin.

It's an amazing coin. Great weight and great size (I didn't think so initially, I thought it was too big at first). Overall an amazing product.

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.
