Warded Klat of Leesha Paper - The Demon Cycle
Warded Against Demon Corelings
From the bestselling Demon Cycle novels by Peter V. Brett, including The Warded Man, The Desert Spear, The Daylight War, and The Skull Throne.
These wood coins were created by Countess Leesha Paper circa 334 AR to kickstart the economy after the Krasian conquest of southern Thesa flooded Hollow County with thousands of refugees. They were paid in inexpensive pressed wooden coins called klats, which could be used as food tokens and at general stores. As the Hollow economy strengthened, brass and silver coins were added to the currency.
The coins serve the dual purpose of providing succor from demons in the night. The wards around the circumference map out a basic circle of protection, and the coins themselves, if laid in a line, will repel demon corelings.
The obverse features the likeness of Countess Paper, while the reverse depicts her crest, the mortar and pestle. Each side of the klat is framed in a rotated ward circle, each ward protecting from a different demon.

Coin design by Małgorzata Mitmańska using wards designed by Lauren K. Cannon. Engraving by Woody 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.
