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

If you are giving this as a gift and would like a different name on the envelope, please include the recipient's name in the Special Instructions field as you complete your order.

So this coin looks beautiful but is not as thick as I was hoping. The 1.5" copper moon coin was more of what I was looking for, and 1.5" was not too big, where 1" niobium feels smaller than what I was hoping. Still a beautiful coin, just providing this context for others.
Thanks for your input! We'll keep this in mind for future releases :)
Me: I'm gonna cut down on the amount of moon coins I buy...
SPM: It's Limited Edition
Me: Checking Out...
The sunset color motif makes for a natural entry into this series of coins. Another must buy.
