King Conan Aquilonian Luna
Featuring King Conan himself! After taking the throne, Conan understood the need for leadership and reluctantly agreed to let his image be made upon new coinage for the kingdom of Aquilonia. This heavy Aquilonian Luna features King Conan and his lion Amra in exquisite detail. The text around the rim is Basque Euskara inscribed in Phapian, an ancient Minoan script.
This King Conan Aquilonian Luna from the world of Robert E. Howard is struck from solid brass, measures 3.2 cm in diameter, and weighs about 20.1 grams. Includes a 30" antique bronze cable chain with clasp. Coin artwork by Woody Maringer and Felix Rasumny.

Thank you all so much
Very thick coin. Beautiful! Shipped quickly.
There is a lot to like about this coin, and not just because of my love for Robert E. Howard's writing. The lion's head is amazing: the coin is so much thicker than almost all of my other ones, and the engraver took full advantage of the extra material to make a truly stunning, deep relief. And on the reverse side, even if you have no idea who Conan is, the profile is instantly recognizable as a powerful leader, exactly what every other monarch wants from putting their face on currency. Finally, I like the engraver's choice to use incuse lettering around the edges: it will take much, much, longer to wear away, and definitely not in my lifetime. One of my favorite coins, and a perfect "gold piece" for tabletop games (even if they're not set in the Hyborian Age).
The coin itself looked wonderful and the packaging made me grin. This purchase was well worth it.
