King of ROHAN™ Helm Hammerhand

"Of the Kings of the Mark between Eorl and Théoden most is said of Helm Hammerhand. He was a grim man of great strength."

  • Solid brass, 21 grams

  • 1.3 in (3.3 cm) diameter

This Brass Stallion was minted during a time of escalating conflict between the Rohirrim and the Dunlendings during which Helm Hammerhand reigned over ROHAN™ as king. The conflict had already raged while Helm’s father Gram was king before him for all twenty-three years of his kingship. This coin was minted in TA 2754 during the final years of Helm’s rule, five years prior to his death in TA 2759.

The defensive stronghold of Hornburg, south of the Fords of Isen, was renamed after him as Helm’s Deep. 

Helm was called Hammerhand because of his great strength and prowess with his fists: he was known to fight barehanded. This is sometimes attributed to a superstition that if “he used no weapon no weapon would upon bite him”.

One side of the coin depicts a hammer and clenched fist. Above, the words Helm Hammerhand King of the Eorlings. The obverse shows a galloping horse surrounded by text, Forth and fear no darkness. The text is inscribed in Tengwar.

The coin I received that represents the Rohirrim was a piece of incredible metal work. I am so impressed by the coins from the Shire Mint that i have shown their work to my family and friends. They also love them! Keep it up!

Forth, Eorlingas!

I love how you can tell immediately that the roughness of the minting matches the “technology” of Rohan perfectly. That’s not to say it’s not a tough, beautifully designed and minted coin, just that - especially compared to those of Gondor and even the Dwarves - the consistency and level of detail in the design reflects the bucolic nature of the people of Rohan. Brilliantly done, and one of the many favorites in my collection.

Love this coin!

Beautiful design and nice chunky thickness. Feels great to worry in my pocket. As always, Shire Post killed it!
