Struck in a quarter ounce of .999 pure silver, the Earth’s Moon silver medal features a geographically correct 136,794,240:1 scale design of the Moon. At 25 mm in diameter, the medal lets you to get up close and personal with our lunar neighbor and see all the intricate 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.
Another key point is that it features both the near and far sides of the Moon, with the near side on the front and the “dark” side on the back of the medal. 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.
This is a great gifting item that is not only an fascinating pure silver collectible, but it also doubles nicely as a jewellery item, easily converted into a gorgeous pendant.
