These are so well crafted, they could have indeed come straight from a Shire smithy. They’re currently living as “loose change” on top of a menu from the Prancing Pony in a corner of my smial.

Thank you for sharing! Though now I'm hungry...

To there and back again

I got this as a gift for my dad this past xmas. He's a big Tolkien fan and loved the fact that the coins were small enough to fit Hobbit hands!

Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. 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.

We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
