It looks gorgeous! But there may be playability issues, I’m afraid. I can see that one of the moons on the tokens is skinnier, people will soon learn what’s on the other side.
I’m not the best person to comment on this. My first attempt at making one was a total disaster. The second try was not that bad (1 mm thick paper, stickers on both sides, transparent plastic on top), but it failed because I just couldn’t cut decent round paper tokens. Next time, I have two ideas: one is to use Daniel Ajoy’s design, because the images on the tokens are kind of more centralized, making it harder to notice any mistakes. The other idea is to use molds, salt dough, and stencils.

Thanks Daniel. That’s a good point about the tiles/coins being identifiable. Luckily, we’re only playing it very casually, so I don’t think that’ll be a proble,.
Do let me know how you go making other piecepacks. I’ve tried stencils without much luck, but did consider molds/stamps.
