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.

Got my Blue Moon on a chain, and put it on as soon as I got it. Been enjoying it every day. Niobium is fascinating. Thanks for the opportunity, Thomas at Shire Post Mint!
I bought the Blue Moon Coin to remind myself of the rarity of beautiful things i.e. things that only come along 'once in a blue moon'.
And I must say, I wasn't disappointed! The almost iridescent blue is an unearthly colour and the intricate detail in the design is sublime.
This Blue Moon necklace was just as advertised! I feel like it's Blue Moon luck every night!
Again, love your stuff, love the old fashion way you do your work, Skilllllllllll
