While I didn't get the opportunity to see the coin in person even my friend's friends gave "wow" reactions when she posted pics to Facebook. The quality of these coins is so beautiful.
What an amazing coin! Feels like it's straight out of the Lord of the Rings universe!
The detailed work on this coin is as solid as every for SPM. I just think that this was a missed opportunity to put it in actual silver as opposed to nickel. Still, it is a lovely piece for the price.
We actually do have this in solid .999 silver! Look for 'Silver GONDOR™ Double Crown'
