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

You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a pray for
Someone I really could care for
Without a love of my own.
But at least buying moon coins from SPM fills the void in my heart.
I really love the way this coin looks! The shimmers of purple and blue are incredibly pretty to look at, and it feels great in my hand--I'm super happy to have this!
I would love to try my own hand at anodizing niobium someday, but for now these little gems are perfect and simply wonderful.
This makes such a great necklace
I bought this coin for my partner while she is going through a tough period in her life. I have often told her, “if I could give you the moon I would” and in this case I was able to. I gave it to her with this message
When things are getting tough, you can hold the moon coin, and close your eyes. It will take you to the surface of the moon where it is quiet and peaceful. When you get there, you will gently float to the surface, the soft grey granular sand will slightly crunch under you and cushion your body. There you will be able to see the different landscapes of the moon, craters and plateaus, long undisturbed by anything, ancient and serien. At the horizon, off in the distance of space you can see the planet earth slowly rising into view. Quietly moving into view, the oceans and continents behind white clouds. All is quiet and peaceful.
Here you can sit peacefully, just watching the earth on the quiet moon landscape.
When you are ready, you can come home, just as gently as you came to the moon. And we will be here waiting for you with open arms and open hearts.
And she often visits the moon when she needs to, she always comes home able to take on the challenges that face her.
Thank you for creating such a beautiful product,
