My husband is a veteran and pretty serious dude. He's been going through a rough time and when he read the enscription on the coin he started weeping and gave me a huge hug thanking me so much for such a thoughtful gesture. He kept saying how much this coin made him realize he is not lost forever, he will get back to a good place again. It wasn't his birthday or anything I just got him this coin as a small token (hehe) of my love for him out of no where and it really moved him to tears and was apparently just what he needed. So overall great coin.
Love it! Only complaint is the thumb is out for the metal horns, it's not a true sign of voor. Even emojis get this right. But I knew that when I bought the coin, and I still love it. If you are considering a purchase from this fine establishment, do it! (I used the coin to decide if I should mention the thumb in this review!) High quality, excellent packaging, quick ship.
To thing that this is a piece of a bracelet that can be broken up into smaller units. The piece of eight of Westeros? As always, detail work is top notch.
Four tiny copper coins for Hobbit lovers. The designs were well crafted.
I ordered some theme coins from Shire Post Mint, mostly Middle Earth, plus some from "Game of Thrones". I've been a Tolkien fan since reading the books in 6th grade. I've been a coin collector for a bit longer than that, too!
You can only imagine what it felt like to hold coins of the Middle Earth realms, from a coin of the Dale, a Shire thruppence, a Brumby penny of Rohan, the silver of Gondor, the gilt of Lothlorien, the evergreen of Hollin. The magic and wonder from my very first reading of the trilogy, 44 years ago, and the Hobbit, the Silmarillion, flooded back into my heart. How often in life do we get to embrace that wonderment TWICE?
I will admit a frisson when handling the coin of Mordor; Sauron's Eye. I haven't touched it directly yet. I'm a bit afraid to do so, as I haven't run the wrath of a wizard so far in my life, and I intend to keep it that way!
The Shore Post Mint is simply brilliant. Not only do they bring author's works into our world, they do it with a craft, aesthetic, and artisanship that is unworldly indeed...or simply very hard to find in THIS world.
I intend to buy more for myself, and various folks in my life will be seeing them come Yule, birthdays, and New Year's, too. I won't tell you about their packaging, except to say it's an utterly delightful treat in and of itself. I hope any who read this enjoy these coins as much as I have, and do.
I’m in love with your coin art guys. The Faceless Man series of coins are amazingly beautiful. Thanks for your lovely work.
Our family are true Lord of the Rings and Hobbit fans! I'm sure they will love these exceptional, tailor-made coins! I found very unique trinket keepsake boxes for them too so Christmas will be extra special this year!
beautiful quality piece of silver, full of detail. wouldn't hesitate to buy one of these for friends or family or worry about it arriving at a reasonable time! Thanks shire post Mint!!
Recieved a scam email the day after I ordered asking me to click a link, quoting moon coin. BEWARE. It was from an email address of a bunch of numbers followed by @qq.com.

Everything I order from Shire Post Mint is pure magic. Earlier in the year I bought the silver full moon necklace and it was so beautiful I had to have a copper coin as well.
