An amazing product!

It’s difficult to imagine topping the authenticity of these coins. They’re so individualized, with such attention to detail, that holding them conveys the very real impression of being transported away — of a fantasy realm made real and just out of sight. Repeat-purchaser, and will likely purchase from again!

More Hobbit collection goodness

SPM continues to work their magic for these Shire haypennies. A pretty affordable set as well.

Hobbit set #4

Another great set. I have several and every one is different. I have some that have a purplish and bluish tint to them and others that look like shinny copper or dark brown shades. They are small around a US dime but they are packed with details and look fantastic.

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.
