The Hobbit™ Set #6 - The Shire Four Tuppences

THE SHIRE™ Tuppences

Four Tuppences in brass from The Shire. The brass Tuppence is equal to two pence, or two Pennies. On the obverse, surrounding the tree: Two Pence of The Shire, abode of the Hobbits. On the reverse, the four Farthings are symbolized by tree branches. Around them: Belegroth, also known as Michel Delving, and Shire Year and the date. Each denomination of Shire coinage has 4 variations featuring different trees. This four tree group contains all four possible trees: pine, elm, willow, and oak. Coin text is inscribed in Tengwar.

The coins in this set from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien are struck from solid brass, measure 2.7 cm in diameter, and weigh 4.8 grams.

Designed and engraved by Greg Franck-Weiby. Learn more about our artists.



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.


Note—Each order comes packed with a handwritten envelope straight from Shire Post Mint. We will make this out to whomever is on the SHIPPING ADDRESS. If you are giving this as a gift and would like a different name on the envelope, please include the recipient's name in the Special Instructions field as you complete your order.

Straight from a hobbit's pocket

These coins are lovely - beautiful design, well made and aged to look like a Baggins has been jingling them in his pocket. 100% as advertised.
