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.

Exactly the size I wanted and both look great
Pretty great coin, detail and quality is great.
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.
