Finally, Back In Stock!

I have many of the moons from SPM, and I love them all, equally. One might say that I am obsessed with images of the moon as decoration or jewelry (though I am definitely not a werewolf.) Because of their unique process of metallurgy, the MOKUME-GANE MOON COINS have been out-of-stock for a few years, and I waited patiently for them to return. I ordered two of them immediately, and Sarah & Woody far exceeded my expectations and hopes by ensuring that I got exactly the moons that I wanted (since no two of these are the same, that is quite an important detail, and their kindness is endless and very appreciated). I look forward to their next awesome coin creation... and certainly hoping that it will be another moon.

Moon coins:

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.

Beautiful Moon

This little moon is a masterpiece.

Another fine addition to the collection

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.

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.
