You have seen the Copper Leaf of Holly from The Lord of the Rings™ Set #1. We are excited to present the full Four Leaf Set with copper, brass, pure silver, and niobium coins.
The coins take the shape of the Holly leaf and are struck in varying metals to distinguish their denominations. The Fall Leaf in copper is the smallest denomination, followed by the Winter Leaf in silver, and the Summer Leaf when it is struck in gold*. The Spring Leaf in Mithril™ is the largest denomination: worth ten times as much as the golden Summer Leaf, though after the fall of Moria and the production of Mithril ceased, any Mithril item became priceless.
From lowest to highest denomination:
Fall Leaf of Holly • pure copper
Winter Leaf of Holly • pure 99.9% silver
Summer Leaf of Holly • gold (struck in red-brass)
Spring Leaf of Holly • Mithril (struck in niobium)
*Note: Some elves are known to value silver higher than gold.
The Kingdom of HOLLIN™
Also known as Eregion (meaning Land of the Holly in Sindarin), Hollin was an Elven Realm of the Ñoldorin Elves during the Second Age. It was located near the West Gate of Moria, or Khazad-dûm. The Elves and Dwarves in this region maintained amicable relations and traded freely for years. These coins were made by the Ñoldorin Elves while under the rule of Celebrimbor, the great Elven-smith and forger of the Rings of Power. Hollin was later destroyed during the War of the Elves and Sauron. The Tengwar side translates from Sindarin: “Star-kindler, O Elbereth! White shining slants down like the Silmarils from the heavens - the radiance of the star-host.” On the reverse, in Dwarf Runes (Angerthas Moria): “Under Celebrimbor, lord of Eregion Tegilbor made me in the eleventieth year of the third yen.”
