Elvish Silver Leaf of Winter Necklace

$82.00

A Silver Winter Leaf of HOLLIN™

Also known as Eregion (meaning Land of the Holly in Sindarin), Hollin was an Elven Realm of the Ñoldorin Elves during the Second Age. It was located near the West Gate of Moria, or Khazad-dûm. These coins were made by the Ñoldorin Elves while under the rule of Celebrimbor, the great Elven-smith and forger of the Rings of Power. Hollin was later destroyed during the War of the Elves and Sauron.

The Tengwar side translates from Sindarin:

“Star-kindler, O Elbereth! White shining slants down like the Silmarils from the heavens - the radiance of the star-host.”
On the reverse, in Dwarf Runes (Angerthas Moria):
“Under Celebrimbor, lord of Eregion Tegilbor made me in the eleventieth year of the third yen.”
The bilingual inscriptions indicate the Elves and Dwarves in this region maintained amicable relations and traded freely for years during the Second Age. For many Elves, Silver is more valuable even than Gold.

A shiny leaf for a colder winter

This silver leaf on it's silvery chain has not tarnished cos it's invisibly coated, used it for daily wear, no colour change :) but it's great looking!

Exceedingly gorgeous

This pendant is fairer than 3 strands of hair plucked from our Lady Galadriel’s golden head.

Very pretty and love the long chain, only disappointment was the leaf imprint has a lot of metal surrounding it unevenly like it wasn't pressed correctly or something.

Thanks for your feedback! This coin is tricky to mint due to its Holly shape and shallow engraving. When struck, the metal flows outwards and can be uneven. We try our best to pick out the ones that are quite irregular, though all will be a little unique. If you'd like to explore an exchange, feel free to contact us via our Contact page. I can't promise that our other pendants will have a dramatically different border, however.

Each order comes packed with a handwritten envelope sealed with wax straight from Shire Post Mint! Unless changed, we will hand write the name of the person listed in the Shipping Address.

If ordering a gift or if you'd like to customize your handwritten name, please include the recipient's name in the Personalization Options field as you complete your order.

One envelope is included in your order, if you would like to purchase additional handwritten Gift Envelopes, you can find them here.

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.
