Of the different editions of this coin, this was intended to be the most common version, or the earthly version. Most of the other editions were named after features on the moon such as:
The Sea of Tranquility - gold on silver (nickel)
The Sea of Nectar - gold on copper
The Sea of Crisis - white nickel on black nickel
The Sea of Clouds - pearly white on gold with glass accents
The Lake of Dreams - gold on black nickel with glass accents
My intention in the overall naming of the different editions is that this is an Elfish coin and that the Elves had a great fondness for the moon.
The elfish writing, also known as tengwar, can be translated as:
"But my dreams did not leave me, nor the fates long deceive me, and the winter gave way to the spring"
This coin was intended for people who feel that hope is far away. It is a reminder that night turns to day, the dark moon becomes full again, and winter turns to spring.

That's pretty awesome I was expecting them to be a bit bigger.
Do you make them for people as well obviously being paid..? Because that is pretty cool, I've never met somene who does this before.
