Conan Set #1 - Five Coins from the Hyborian Age
Coins from the Hyborian Age™
A selection of five coins from five kingdoms of the Hyborian age.
Black Skull of Crom • CimmeriaThese blackened nickel bronze coins were made to pay homage to the Cimmerian diety, Crom, whose chief function is to count the dead in battle. The reverse features a vulture and the inscription "Crom Counts the Dead" in Icelandic Elder Futhark runes.
Stygian Scroll • StygiaThese square coins are a small Scroll denomination from Stygia. They are usually used in the sorcery trade, primarily for the buying and selling of spells and potions. Features the double-headed snake of Thulsa Doom.
Aquilonian 1p • AquiloniaThis small coin of Aquilonia features the stern image of Conan after he has become king.
Hyperborean 1p • HyperboreaA small coin of Hyperborea, a vast northern kingdom locked in perpetual winter and ruled by an order of witches and wizards known as the White Hand.
Turanian 1p • TuranThis coin is from the savage Kingdom of Turan, which sits on the south-western shores of the great inland sea Vilayet.
The coins in this set from the world of Robert E. Howard are struck from solid brass, copper and bronze, measure 2 to 2.4 cm in diameter, and weigh 2.7 to 5.8 grams. Coin artwork by Woody Maringer.
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 and facts about the coins.
Note—Each order comes packed with a handwritten envelope straight from Shire Post Mint. We will make this out to whomever is on the SHIPPING ADDRESS. If you are giving this as a gift and would like a different name on the envelope, please include the recipient's name in the Special Instructions field as you complete your order.

The only problem I had in ordering my coins is that when I received them the coins were to beautiful to use. I have ordered more since and I will do so in the future.
The coin set exceeds expectations. They're very cool!
As a longtime fan of Conan and a frequent traveler to Hyborian lands (via imagination) it's great to be able to hold a piece of the story in your hand!
I REALLY enjoy the same coins, and the personal geek within side me can NOT stop smiling, and I have recommended the Shire to two of my co-workers, and tomorrow I am taking my coins to work to show off to my many co-workers, and I am a supervisor (i.e. Safety Adviser and First Aid Attendant) at a construction site with 30+ workers
These coins feel realistic and are fun just to hold and play with. Had a problem with the adhesive on one of them, but Shire Post took care of it right away.
