Mistborn Set #2 - Two Coins of Elendel
Two Coins of the First Central Bank
A set of two coins from the First Central Bank of Elendel.
Copper Clip of ElendelClips are thick copper coins and the smallest denomination. The obverse features the Ascendant Warrior wearing a detailed Mistcloak and surrounded by the name of the city, “Elendel”, written in the Steel Alphabet. On the reverse is the symbol for copper surrounded by the words “One Clip” with the Steel Alphabet number 1 on either side.
Golden Boxing of ElendelBoxings are large golden coins of Elendel. They feature the The Lord Mistborn overlooking the Elendel Basin surrounded by the words “Elendel” and “One Boxing”. On the reverse is the facade of the First Central Bank surrounded by the Steel Alphabet number 1.
The word “Boxing” used to be a slang term for gold Imperials of The Final Empire, referring to Kredik Shaw, the palace of The Lord Ruler. After the Catacendre, the slang context of this word was lost and the coins became officially known as Boxings.
The coins in this set from the world of Brandon Sanderson are struck from solid copper and brass, measure 1.9 to 2.8 cm in diameter, and weigh 6.1 to 15.4 grams. Coin artwork by Isaac Stewart, Ben McSweeney and 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 in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with history and facts about the coin.
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.

Coins were exactly what I was hoping they would be. They have a nice weight and are very detailed.
Same as my last review for set #1. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. The personal touch with the envelope, individual sleeves, everything. Just blown away at the packaging and product. I have more stuff in my cart already to buy right now!!!
Items were high quality and arrived on time. Arrived in unexpected "authentic" packaging. Would definitely buy from again.
Product came in incredible, and unexpected packaging. Seriously, way too cool.
I have a small handful of Shire Post coins, and the Mistborn coins are a delightful addition to my coin (and book) collection.
