THE SHIRE™ Layered Coin Necklace
Wear three coins of The Shire around your neck
A 30" chain holds three coins from The Shire coins: a brass Shire Tuppence, a copper Shire Penny, and a tiny copper Shire Farthing. Coin text is inscribed in Tengwar. The coins will each feature a tree that will be one of the following variants: pine, elm, willow, and oak. The card inside provides translation of the coin text on each coin.
The coins in this set from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien are struck from solid copper and brass, measure 1 to 2.2 cm in diameter, and weigh .5 to 7 grams. Coin artwork and engraving by Greg Franck-Weiby. The plated necklace chain is 30", certified nickel free.
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.

It's wonderful to hold, there's a good weight to it.
I don’t order often from Shire Post Mint, but every single item I’ve received has come beautifully packaged, as-or-better-than-advertised, and faster than expected.
They clearly take a ton of pride in their work and have a great deal of respect and appreciation for their customers and it’s absolutely reciprocated.
This piece (The Shire Layered Coin Necklace) is a gift to a huge LOTR fan and I know he’s going to love it and enjoy the care that went into its packaging and presentation just as much as I have with my pieces.
Really can’t say enough about the products and the culture of this company.
I am never disappointed with the Shire Post Mint products. Top level craftsmanship and quality. The unwrapping process is the best. If you’re considering a purchase, do it. You’ll love what you get.
All the products I’ve ever bought tom the Shire Post Mint have been excellent, and this necklace is no different. Superb quality and beautiful craftsmanship!
Title says it all! Ordered the Shire Layered Coin Necklace as a birthday gift for a Hobbit superfan. From the unique mailing envelope to the necklace itself, this was a hit. Thanks to the CPTV program that spotlighted this unique family business!
