The coins in this set from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien are struck from solid copper, brass and iron, measure 2.1 to 2.7 cm in diameter, and weigh 2.7 to 11 grams. Coin artwork by Greg Franck-Weiby and Tom 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 one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with history, translations, and facts about the coins.
