Straight from a hobbit's pocket

These coins are lovely - beautiful design, well made and aged to look like a Baggins has been jingling them in his pocket. 100% as advertised.

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.
