1/4-oz Silver Full Moon Antiqued Medal Gem BU
NEW for 2020!
1/4 oz - solid .999 silver!
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 Full Moon Silver 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 25 mm (about one inch) in diameter, the medal lets you to get up close and personal with our lunar neighbor and 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 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 Gem Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition, meaning that it is the product of a superb strike that places your medal firmly among the elite of the run. So as not to obscure any part of the design, each piece features edge lettering to denote its metal and fineness.
Touch the surface of the Moon without leaving the comfort of your own home with the Quarter-Ounce Silver Full Moon Antiqued Medal. It makes a perfect gift and a great conversation piece that brings you one step closer to the dream every child had in the 1960s — standing on the lunar surface.
