Beautiful and Unique

My daughter loves all things blue, so this really hit the mark! It’s beautiful! The unique metal is also very light weight. She’s been after my copper coin from Shire Post Mint, so best option was get her one of her own!


Totally perfect naturally blue metal

Once in a Blue Moon

This coin truly is a a 'once in a blue moon' gift! Superb detail and a blue iridescence that changes colour as you turn it in your hand - sublime!

I loved the color and the detail on this!! I bought several, for myself and some friends, and they look amazing and feels great, and reading the factsheet that came with it was a lot of fun! I'm glad to have it, and I know my friends will love theirs, too!
