Coin of the First Men
The first coin in Westeros
- solid bronze
- rune meaning "wealth"
- one-sided design
- .25" (.6 cm) diameter
This tiny coin was found in one of the less inhabited Stepstones. Maesters presume that the coin was dropped during the First Men’s journey over what was once the land bridge between Essos and Westeros. The First Men were known to have cattle and bronze weapons during their journey into Westeros. The First Men spent thousands of years populating Westeros and creating hundreds of kingdoms across the land. The other side of this coin may have had a design at one point but it seems to have worn away with time.
Coin of the First Men concept art by Maggie Ivy. Coin design inspired by the earliest known coins and features modified Anglo-Saxon rune known to mean "wealth".
