Vlad Dracula Copper Coin

The Real-life Dracula

  • solid copper

  • 2.3 cm diameter
  • limited run

 

Bram Stoker’s famous tale of Dracula the vampire was inspired by the life of Vlad the Impaler, Vlad III, the Prince of Wallachia. "Dracula" means "Son of the dragon" and he and his father, Vlad Dracul, were both members of the chivalric Order of the Dragon, and renamed themselves accordingly. This fictionalized 3-Ducat coin is from the days of his short-lived triumph over the Ottoman Turks. The obverse features a portrait of Vlad Dracula while the reverse bears the sign of the dragon. Give it to the immortal in your life so they can remember the good 'ol days.

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.

The blood is the life!

Looks exactly like a real small historical coin. Keep it secure if you keep it on your person. I almost lost mine recently. 5/5

This is a great coin. I love the authenticity of it. I truly believe this coin came from the coffers of the great Impaler!

Fine addition to historical homage pieces

Whether in circulated or mint condition, the craftsmanship in this coin is incredible. Consider getting both styles.
