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!

Ambs P.

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!

Very nice piece.

A beautiful addition to my collection of Moon coins.
