Rivendell™ Copper Moon
An Elvish Moon of Rivendell
This unique Elvish coin from Rivendell, or Imladris in Sindarin, is shaped like a crescent moon. It depicts the Rivendell valley, flanked by waterfalls, containing the ancient trees of silver and gold and the three Silmarils, represented as stars. The text in Tengwar translates from Sindarin to "Elrond Peredhil, Lord of Rivendell, The Last Homely House East of the Sea" and includes the date, TA 2941, the year that Thorin and Company meet Elrond at Rivendell before continuing on to The Lonely Mountain.
This Rivendell™ Copper Moon from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien is struck from solid Copper, measures 3.17 cm in diameter, and weighs about 6.1 grams. Coin artwork by Dylan Craig and Woody Maringer.
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.

This stunning coin was the dessert of my wife's gift haul. Needless to say, she loved it as it no doubt reminded her of our journeys to the theatre to midnight showings of the LotR and the Hobbit trilogies. Or perhaps she reminisced about the ethereal loveliness of Elrond's home. I couldn't tell, I'm not a psychic.
But she carries this coin with her daily and often studies it when she thinks I'm not looking. That being said, if she starts calling it "My Precious", I will have to remove a star from this review.
I love all the beautiful detail on both sides of this coin, and am that little bit closer to my trip to Middle Earth!!
SPM really knows how to work with quality copper to make beautiful coins. The details in the piece are well done, as expected.
Truely, you will want 3. I went for one of each but even 3 of the same would be amazing when you put them together.....
