Beware: the iron moon coin is VERY dark. Cast iron pan black. I was expecting a dark grey, but the black makes a lovely “new moon”. A wonderful coin, I’m hoping to purchase more in the future, made from different materials.
Honestly the only thing that would improve this is when we get metal back from the moon to make the coins with :) Love it. The weight, the textures, just feels perfect.
A nicely made moon coin with clear impression and good weight. A unique and neat coin.
Another fine addition to the moon coin series. Details are well sculted and visible even with the dark coating.
I am beyond pleased with my moon coin. It has a very pleasant feel in the hand if you're using it as a worry coin, and it is unbelievable how good it looks. I could not be more satisfied.
