Love how it rings in the air!

This is probably my favorite one so far. The anodizing on it looks amazing! And out of all my moon coins this has the loudest ring when I flip it. Love all my coins and this is a must have if you're anything like me.

Amazing! I've heard that hardness can impact the sound of a ring. Your example makes sense since niobium is the hardest metal we work with!

Beautiful— but a bit light

I love this coin. The color is amazing and the minting is totally on point. Niobium is a bit light to be as thin as this one is, I think. Almost feels like those mardi gras dubloons, but the color is astonishing and the accuracy of the moon’s surface is really rad. I would buy this again, even though it wasn’t exactly what I expected.

Thanks for your feedback! At the larger size, you can really feel the difference in weight, but I agree it's harder to tell with a smaller coin.
