Blue and Purple Moon Coin - 1" Anodized Niobium

 Once in a blue (and purple) moon... 

This special edition of our Moon coin features a geographically (technically it's selenographically) correct 136,794,240:1 scale design of the surface texture of Earth's Moon's near and far side. A great worry coin, gift, or reminder coin. 

  • struck in solid niobium 
  • anodized blue and purple
  • 1" coin weighs 6.5 g
  • archival packaging comes with description of the coin and Moon Facts! 

Also check out the larger 1.5" blurple coin.

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.

Hi Tom, I'm glad you like our customer service. We try hard :) This coloring was a really fun experiment in what we can do with niobium. We'd never tried anodizing the shadows and highlights different colors before this. All that is to say, the goal of this piece was artistic experimentation more than an accurate representation. I agree that the silver or brass Moons are a much better starting point for collectors. Thanks for your great review!
