Limited Run Marbled Metal
Worry no more! This I Win/You Lose coin makes sure that you come out the winner every time. Just don't let your friends flip it for you. Perfect when deciding who buys the next round or who is taking out the trash.
This limited run version is made of Mokume-gane, a 17th-century Japanese metalworking technique made up of layered patterns of different metals, originally intended to imitate the appearance of woodgrain. The metal we're using is a "teardrop" pattern made up of equal parts copper, brass, and nickel silver. Each coin has been toned with heat to give it a special rainbow oxide patina. The metal patterns vary from coin to coin, ensuring your piece is truly one of a kind. Due to the layered nature of this metal, some coins will contain moderate cracks.
This Mokume-gane I Win/You Lose Decision Maker is struck from solid Mokume-gane, measures 3.2 cm in diameter, and weighs about 15 grams. Coin artwork and engraving by Woody Maringer.
The product is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two are exactly the same! Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with the coin.
