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.

i love the selenographically correct surfaces (cos i memorised them as a kid; fake details on ostensible "moon" coins just look wrong) and this 1.5" moon is big, heavy and chunky enough to show my mates (I think the 1 inchers are for girls? lol). I have 1 as a charm and bought another 1 as a coin..so once in 2 blue moons... SPM 1.5" stuff is addictive.... :D
I wondered why they did not have a supermoon version of their Blue Moon Coin. One of the best looking members of this series, it needed a larger update. As with the others, the details of the moon were painstakingly etched. A must-buy.
