Viserys I Targaryen Golden Dragon in solid brass


The Jovial King, Dragonrider of Balerion

  • Solid brass, 21g
  • 1.27" (3.2 cm) coin
  • Broadstruck

A Golden Dragon minted during the reign of King Viserys I Targaryen. King Viserys’ generosity was legendary. The Red Keep became a place of song and splendor during his reign. In his midlife, Viserys’ girth nearly kept him from ascending the steps to the Iron Throne. The obverse features the king’s portrait. On the reverse is a tribute to the formidable Balerion the Black Dread. Viserys was a dragonrider who bonded with and rode Balerion until the dragon died of old age during the reign of Jaehaerys I. Viserys never bonded with another dragon after Balerion’s death. When struck in gold, the Dragon denomination is worth 11,760 copper Pennies.

Coin design by Maggie Ivy, engraved by Woody Maringer.

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.
