The Moon Glows Blue!

This is possibly the coolest coin I've received from Shire Post. The niobium treatment shimmers radioactive blue with highlights of purple. The surface detail clearly shows the most famous features like the Sea of Tranquility. I love how the paper packet it comes in has moon information and maps out other surface features. And with a flip of your thumb, you can see the far side of the moon!

Beautiful coin

Wow what a beautiful coin .

I love it

The Shire comes through again with a beautiful Moon.

So Hefty!

At first, I wasn't a fan of the "novelty" color of this moon. However, the hefty 1.5" coin has an alluring pop of color that really is lovely.


Edges on light side of moon are smoothed, looking almost worn, not well defined.

Hi Jayden,
If you would like an exchange or return, feel free to contact us. Unfortunately Niobium is a tough metal (literally!) to strike in so some of the subtle details don't strike up as well compared to softer metals like silver and copper.

Each order comes packed with a handwritten envelope sealed with wax straight from Shire Post Mint! Unless changed, we will hand write the name of the person listed in the Shipping Address.

If ordering a gift or if you'd like to customize your handwritten name, please include the recipient's name in the Personalization Options field as you complete your order.

One envelope is included in your order, if you would like to purchase additional handwritten Gift Envelopes, you can find them here.

Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.

We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
