Hand-engraved by Woody Maringer at Shire Post Mint, this coin certifies that you are helping Crash Course reach 10,000 learners. The 10,000 learner coin is minted on brass, and each coin is stamped with a unique number between 1 and 500. It also comes in a display case that will contain a hand-signed thank you card from Hank and John Green.

Only 500 of these coins are being made.

Hand-engraved by Woody Maringer at Shire Post Mint, this coin certifies that you are helping Crash Course reach 10,000 learners. The front side shows the Crash Course door surrounded by 200 hash marks, each of which represents 50 people you are helping us educate. 

This year’s coin design features illustrations inspired by paintings from the Lascaux caves in France, estimated to be around 17,000 years old. While it’s easy to feel as though the people who created that art are very separate from us, this coin reminds us that, in fact, they are us. Their story is our story, and our story is theirs. And just as we learn and pass on knowledge today by observation, experimentation, and communication, so did those prehistoric artists.

The illustrations are ringed with the words "Knowledge Weighs Nothing, Carry All You Can." This coin isn't a huge thing, but it represents something massive. 

Thank you for being a part of our work.
