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 give them 5 out of five. Product as described and arrived on time.
Only one complaint: The layered brass, nickle & copper coin was not cut correctly. A small sliver was missing from one edge making it an incomplete circle. Very small. The only way it would matter to me is if I was a serious coin collector and I'm not. It's all good.
These coins are very exact and beautifully done! Reasonable pricing.
This little moon is a masterpiece.
This coin looks, to me, like the full moon through wispy clouds in a dark fantasy setting. Layered metals always provide unique patterns like the ones you find with this. Highly recommended.
I personally think that this coin, The Mokume-Gane Moon is the most interesting and beautiful. Thank you SPM for having a sale!
well worth it
