GONDOR™ Silver Penny
The First Coin of the Fourth Age featuring ARAGORN™ and PALANTIR™
Made to commemorate the crowning of Aragorn II Elessar and the restoration of the throne, this Gondor silver penny is struck in 1/16 troy ounce of .90 pure silver.
Surrounding Aragorn on horseback, inscribed in Tengwar: “Elessar, Arwen, Gondor.” The coin is a celebration of Aragorn’s coronation as well as his marriage to Arwen™. On the reverse is the White Tree of Gondor, which grows in the Court of the Fountain. Above it are the seven stars of the House of Elendil: the Kings of Gondor. Below it are the seven stones or Palantíri™ used for communication within Middle-earth and beyond. Over the tree is the sword and text Andúril™, meaning the Flame of the West in Quenya. Aragorn carried Andúril after the Elves of Rivendell™ reforged it from the shards of Narsil™. Just below the sword are the words “Year One” meaning Year One of the Fourth Age.

Purchased this for my husband's birthday and he loved it! The packaging is awesome, they used a real wax seal on the envelope and it was a purplish-blue color, very magical looking. I'm delighted that the gift was so well received and I'm planning on buying more gifts for other relatives. I highly recommend!
