Shire Shilling - THE SHIRE™ - .999 pure silver
THE SHIRE™ Silver Shilling
One Shilling from The Shire struck in 1/8 troy ounce of .999 pure silver. This coin is available in four possible trees: pine, elm, willow, and oak. Text is inscribed in Tengwar.
This coin from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien is struck from solid .999 silver, measures 2.4 cm in diameter, and weighs 5 grams, or 1/8 of a troy ounce. Coin artwork and engraving by Greg Franck-Weiby.
The coin is treated to look as if it has been handled within its world. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science. Coloring and patinas will vary. No two coins 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.

Beautiful execution, a delightful keepsake.
The Shire shilling is a beautiful coin, feels nice in the hand and looks great on the shelf. SPM continues to impress me!
Looking forward to giving this as a gift!
To start, the L.O.T.R Trilogy is my "go to" for relief. When I need a vacation, that's where I go.
(It was read to me, before I could read.
I had purchased two coins from S.P.M. previously.
Durind the foreyule sale, I orderes this coin.
When I opened the item, it was like a wind across Hobbiton.
Like holding a piece of dream.
To say I loved the coin is understatement.
Check the site, give a loved one a tangible piece of a beloved dream.
Seriously major fan,
I love all the Middle Earth coins from SPM, but the Shire series especially shows deep consistency of a culture across the range of denominations, like well-designed coinage from real-world nations does. The applied wear treatment is pleasing. The Shilling is a proud addition to my Shire showcase!
