"Astronomer" Double Spinning Coin
Coin of the Cosmos
As featured on Cool Hunting, the "Astronomer" Double Spinning Coin is a pocket-sized work of art that you can bring with you anywhere you go. This project is a collaboration with graphic artist, Billy French, and is inspired by the diversity of the EDC community as well as the grandeur and mysteries of the universe.
As the name suggests, the "Astronomer" coin can be spun on both sides, with spin times reaching 10 minutes with practice on a smooth surface. This is achieved by constructing the contact points from durable Si3N4 (silicon nitride) black ceramic. This ensures the smoothest and longest spinning capabilities.
The design of the coin is truly incredible. Each side is different, with one representing the 'sun' and the flip side bearing the mark of the 'moon'. The sun is depicted with an intricate 'eye' motif, while the exquisite 'moon' side features all the different phases of the moon. It represents the two greatest forces exerting their influence on us, and the tension and balance that exists between these titanic entities.
The designs were meticulously hand-drawn for the template. The coins are then crafted by Shire Post Mint in Springdale, Arkansas, and each coin is individually pressed. These are truly functional works of art that you will not find anywhere else.
The "Astronomer" Double Spinning Coin is part of three-piece collaboration. Head over to the Victorinox Swiss Army Knife "Astronomer" Signature Knife and "Astronomer" Zippo Lighter to complete your set.
