This saturday a loud noise sounded when a heavy enveloppe containing these 5 beautiful coins hit the floor after the postman dropped it through our letterbox :

 

Luna-Nova.jpg

 

The coins are huge (2.5" / 5mm) and heavy (145 gr each).

 

I noticed there where Luna coins made before that have the same (front) design but (i think) a different back side. anyone can confirm this and if so, should i consider this a different coin or just different editions ?

This is from Gregson Vaux's Facebook page about just that issue.

I received a request to see the differences between the old Luna coins and the Luna Nova coins. Perhaps most importantly, the old Luna coins were 2 inches in diameter, while the new coins will be 2.5 inches. That probably does not sound like a lot, but it will be. The coin will feel much more substantial and will fill your hand. The details will also be much easier to see.

 

Secondly, The old Luna coins were small enough that I had to use a simple font. The Luna Nova coins will have more complex fonts (letter shapes) and there will be one font for water features such as seas and a different font for land features such as craters and continent names. Old maps used to do that.

 

Thirdly, The back ground for the land and seas will be different textures. The background for the land will be rough and the background for the seas will be smooth.

 

Fourthly, the back side of the coin, which shows the actual topographic features of the moon will be much better. There seemed to have been a lack of communication when I made the old Luna coins. This time I am pretty sure that the factory understood what I want.

So it's a different coin, thanks for your response !

I get a lot of coins from many euro sites, including this one.

 

Once you have an account name set up on the site, it automatically drops the VAT from the pricing on all the pages, but ONLY once it recognizes that a NON-euro customer has logged in. In turn, that also requires that the item/s be shipped to a NON-euro address.

Nothing was in my mailbox today, the same for the past few months. I am part of the Geoswag coin and pin club and they haven't shipped coins for several months and don't answer emails or facebook messages. Anyone else have the same problem?
