2024 Total Solar Eclipse Commemorative Coin - Copper and Brass

Sale price$56.11
Style:

Commemorate the Total Solar Eclipse of 2024!

This visually contrasting bi-metal coin commemorates the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse that spans North America. One side features a face of Earth's only moon which is a geographically (technically selenographically) correct 136,794,240:1 scale design of the surface texture of its near side in copper, with the surrounding solar corona struck in brass. 

The reverse of the coin shows the path of the Moon which will completely block the Sun in the sky across North America during the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse. The coin is inscribed with the event and date. Totality will last up to ~4 minutes and 28 seconds depending on the viewer’s location within this path. 

  • The first 1000 coins will be stamped with a serialized number. First come first serve! Requests for specific serial numbers cannot be accommodated.
  • Bi-metallic coin (inner core is struck in solid copper, outer ring is struck in solid brass)
  • Expert patina to highlight the engraving
  • 1.26" inch (32.1 mm) diameter coin weighs 21.5 grams
  • Collar-struck with a satisfying reeded edge
  • Archival packaging comes with a description of the coin, its unique manufacturing process, and facts about the eclipse!

Bi-metallic Coin Minting

An external brass ring is created with a punch press and two different diameters of steel die. The center hole gets machined to fit the inner copper core. Once the core is in place the two blanks are struck simultaneously. This effectively locks them together through deformation, ensuring the two metals stay in place. This technically demanding form of striking dates back to the 17th century.

Every detail was a delight

The craftmanship of the coin is excellent. Great detail. Good weight. The packaging was also quite fun. Wonderful envelope, the wax seals. It’s the attention to small details that makes it even more wonderful.
