The coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques.

The coin itself is beautifully struck and has excellent detail. The reason I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars is because I would have preferred the raised details be less obscured by the black oxidation. This was a gift for my wife and she loves it. That's the more important aspect of the review.
Most excellent detail and style--I'm sincerely enjoying my Iron Super New Moon Coin (large 1.5") from SPM. I really love that this coin in in blackened iron, it's both rugged & elegant at the same time. The mass is perfect for me and it is a great EDC item.
I haven't received it
The coin itself is a bit shinier than the photos do justice. It came in a nice protective sleeve, with a cute little pamphlet on moon and coin facts. The texture itself feels nice, and I feel it will be less likely to smudge due to the metal and color. Definitely worth the purchase.
This is nice, hefty representation of the dark moon.
