Bad form replying to myself, but this is just TOO COOL... at least to me...

Apparently, in 2009, the Cook Islands released a $5 coin that actually
embedded a piece of one of these lunar asteroids. It commemorates the
40th anniversary of the US landing on the moon and the 50th
anniversary of the russians orbiting the dark side of the moon with
Luna III. So you can buy an actual piece of the moon in one of
these... sorry, as kelly coin guy, I just have to bring up a coin
connection when there is one. Sadly, it's not cheap.. LOL.

Here is the actual coin, for sale on Ebay.

They have other coins with pieces of asteroids in them too...
including, one from a martian meteorite:
This one's cheaper... lol

And a meteor that hit Europe in the late 1800s, perhaps more...

Sorry, just had to share...
