To answer your question: Yes. The diameter of the caps are 26mm, which is almost exactly an inch. I would suggest you measure them, yours could be different. (printaruler)

Also, there's an instructable just to the right of your image about making Nuka Cola caps. I'll put it here too.

Get a bottle cap of the style you want, remove the inner seal, heat it red hot and let it cool slowly (anneal it.) Then hammer it out flat and measure the diameter. You can even use it as a pattern for laying out ones you wish to make.

Go to a beermaking store - and buy caps, they sell them.
