Shire Post Mint | Aztec Sun Stone Calendar | Worry Coin Copper

Based on the 24.5 metric ton monolithic volcanic rock sculpture, the Shire Post Mint Aztec Sun Stone Calendar Worry Coin puts this deeply symbolic artifact right in the palm of your hand. Also known as the Stone of the Five Suns the monolith was buried after the Spanish conquest of Mexico and later rediscovered during repairs on the Mexico City Cathedral in 1790. This coin is an ornate representation of the Sun Stone Calendar with figurative representations of the glyphs and symbols. The pressed texture has a fine tactical feel and the coin is given an antique patina that highlights the detail of the design.

Minting process

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

Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. Each Sun Stone coin ships 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.
