This Silver Medal Will Infuse You with Moon Fever!
Here’s a silver medal that will have you Moonstruck! It’s an incredibly detailed medal that provides an exact replica of the Moon’s surface on a pure silver round!
Struck in a quarter-ounce of highly-pure 99.9% fine silver, the Silver Full Moon Medal features a geographically correct 136,794,240:1 scale design of the Moon. OK, it’s technically selenographically correct – we ARE talking about the Moon, after all! At one inch in diameter, the medal lets you see all the major lunar features thanks to a carefully formulated antique finish that has settled into the crevices of the design while leaving the high points of the relief in full brilliance.
What’s also really neat about this medal is that it features both the near and far sides of the Moon, with the near side on the front and the far side on the back of the medal. The near side or face of the Moon is what we see most nights and especially during a full Moon. But we seldom see the far or “Dark” side of the Moon. The far side features a much more rugged terrain with large impact craters. No human has ever set foot on the dark side, though there are plans to one day erect a large radio telescope there where the Moon would shield it from radio interference from Earth.
Your Quarter-Ounce Silver Full Moon Antiqued Medal also comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. It’s a masterpiece struck at the Shire Post Mint. A highly-respected coining company located in Arkansas, the Shire Post Mint specializes in licensed fantasy coinage. Among its hundreds of licensed coins designs are those from A Game of Thrones™, The Lord of the Rings™, The Hobbit™, Conan the Barbarian™ and more. What makes the Shire Mint unique among other coining operations is that its designs are engraved by hand instead of laser etched by a computer. Additionally, coins are struck using antique coin presses – a historic process that allows for impeccable detail and durability.
Touch the surface of the Moon without leaving the comfort of your own home with the Shire Mint Quarter-Ounce Silver Full Moon Antiqued Medal. It makes a perfect gift and a great conversation piece as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing in 1969. Add one – or several – to your cart today!
