The Black Goat demands blood.
Qohor is the easternmost of the nine Free Cities of Essos. It lies on the river Qhoyne and lies between the dense forest of Qohor to the west and the vast plains of the Dothraki Sea to the east. The Qohorik worship the Black Goat who demands daily blood sacrifices. These sacrifices are mainly cattle or horses, but on holy days, criminals are given to the Black Goat. Qohor was colonized by followers of the Black Goat. The religious dissidents abandoned Valyria, rejecting the religious tolerance practiced by the Valyrian Freehold. The unrivaled Qohorik smiths are the only ones who still know how to rework Valyrian steel and are able to infuse deep colors into their armor. This heavy copper coin features the Black Goat with bulging eyes and twisted horns. A drop of blood is shown above its head, representing the blood sacrifices it desires. The text on the reverse, inscribed in Valyrian, roughly translates to "Qohor With Blood," a reminder of the sacrifices due each day. This coin has been put on a chain for worshippers of the Black Goat to show their allegiance.

For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.
