Dread Pirate Roberts Coin

Take No Prisoners

Though the Dread Pirate Roberts never made any of his own coinage, we think he could have made coins that looked like this! This heavy copper coin is dated 1721 and features grinning a pirate's face with a blade in his teeth. On the reverse, a skull and crossbones and the inscription, TNP for Take No Prisoners. The coin that never was for pirate legend Bartholomew Roberts, Black Bart, the Dread Pirate Roberts. Perfect for any pirate hoard.

This Dread Pirate Roberts Coin from the world of the Great Pirates is struck from solid copper, measures 2.4 cm in diameter, and weighs about 8.2 grams. Coin artwork by Tom Maringer.

The product is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two 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 coin.

Beautifully Made

Being a huge fan of the Princess Bride getting hold of this Dread Pirate coin was a must buy. As with my other Shire Mint coins the quality of the design and manufacturing is incredible. Shire Mint produce some of the best EDC coins around.

Wish it was larger.

Im used to challenge coins, which is mainly what I collect. The images of these coins are somewhat deceiving. Would look amazing in 1.75” rounds. This thing is the size of a nickel.

A curiousity piece

If you have the Golden Age of Piracy as one of your your interests, you may consider buying this item. It is well crafted, but not quite as great as other selections from SPM.

I'm glad you like it! This coin was a really early design and a lot of the elements (the skull and the wreath) are actually vintage designs. We've progressed a lot over the years in coin design and engraving skill. It's cool that you can see the difference that time makes :D
