It's a stunning coin. I was particularly impressed with the detail on the tower of Orthanc. You get the feeling that if Saruman minted coins this would be one of them.
The shipping was incredibly fast too. Arrived within a few days. My only complaint is that it was smaller than I expected. I almost lost it just taking it out of the envelope as I wrote this review. At the price point you do expect a bit more heft. I'd be the first to purchase a larger version.
I love it
This is basically the same as the Red Hand of Saruman from Middle Earth Set #2, but it is now made in silver (hence the WHITE hand ) instead of copper. Nicely detailed coin.
