The Hobbit™ Set #1 - The Shire™ Set of Four Coins

What Does a Hobbit Have in His Pockets?

This set of pure copper coins contains a heavy SHIRE™ Thrup'ny, Shire Penny, Shire Haypenny, and a tiny Shire Farthing. Coin text is inscribed in Tengwar. The coins feature trees including plum, pine, elm, willow, and oak.

The coins in this set from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien are struck from solid copper, measure 1 to 2.2 cm in diameter, and weigh .5 to 7 grams. Coin artwork by Greg Franck-Weiby.

The set contains coins treated to look as if they have been handled and circulated within their world. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science. Coloring and patinas will vary. No two sets are exactly the same! Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with history, translations, and facts about the coins.

"Least Expensive Travel Package to Middle Earth, Ever!"
I'm so glad to hear that these books and our coins can help you travel a bit in this time of whatever-the-opposite-of-traveling-is-called-anymore! If you do happen to graze against Sauron's Eye, you can cleanse yourself by reading a good book, drinking a cup of bitter tea, talking to a loved one, or gazing at a tree for at least 5 minutes.
