The coins in this set from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien are struck from solid copper, brass and iron, measure 2.1 to 2.7 cm in diameter, and weigh 2.7 to 11 grams. Coin design by Greg Franck-Weiby and Tom Maringer. Engraving by Greg Franck-Weiby and Tom Maringer.
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.

If you are giving this as a gift and would like a different name on the envelope, please include the recipient's name in the Special Instructions field as you complete your order.

Beautiful and fun set for a LoTR fan. Bonus was nice packaging, including wax seals, fun comments on the envelope, an informative brochure about what's on each coin (with pretty sketches of the coins on it), and a Shire Post coin (instead of a business card I suppose!). Would definitely recommend this company and these coins!
Shipped out quickly and arrived quickly too (Europe). Gifted as a Christmas gift and the receiver loved it. The envelope it comes in is such a nice detail.
I ordered these as a Christmas gift for my husband, and he loved them!! They're very nice quality, and came in a neat envelope with info on all the coins. If you know a Lord of the Rings fan, this is an awesome thing to gift. I absolutely plan on getting the whole set for him!!
The coins are a treasure and the handwritten packaging a treat.
