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.

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!
Hi Shire Post Mint,
Thank you for this opportunity and reminder to leave some feedback. I'd intended to do this after receiving it, but holidays attacked and I'm truly sorry that I put it off.
I was torn between the Shire Layered Coin Necklace and the Axe of Durin necklace for my friend. She really likes the Dwarves, but the Layered Necklace was a small Shire collection in itself. I decided on the Layered but with a separate Axe of Durin coin - a great compromise and allowable with my budget. The message post-order was that the Axe coins were currently out of stock. Imagine my surprise when the package came and I found it had been substituted with the necklace that I had been agonizing over. Thank you so much! As always, you go above and beyond with quality, service, and creativity.
As for my friend, of course she loved the necklaces!
Thank you very much, as always!
I ordered the layered coin necklace as a christmas gift for the wife and she absolutely adores it. the detail and weight is fantastic and i can highly recommend them.
Beautiful coin necklace. Well made and very attractive. The special packaging was really special. Was a Christmas gift for my daughter who absolutely loved it. She is a big Lord of the rings fan.
