The coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Many coins have green highlights at certain angles. Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques.

I've been purchasing coins from Shire Post for several years and this Blue Moon coin is one of the prettiest looking designs. The engraving is masterful and the coloring achieved by the anodizing process is beautiful. Well done, Shire Post Mint Team!!!

In some alternate timeline, I can imagine some nation making this a special means of exchange. Definitely a worthy collector's piece.
