Ash-Blackened Boxing of The Final Empire
Blackened by Ashfall
Boxings are the large denomination coins of The Final Empire. They would be used for business transactions between noble families and the government Cantons.
The coin obverse has an image of Kredik Shaw, the Lord Ruler's palace. The text surrounding the palace reads "One Imperial" inscribed in the Steel Alphabet. The reverse has the symbol of the Kredik Shaw, as shown on official maps of The Final Empire.
The word "Boxing" was originally a slang term, referring to the "box" of the palace depicted on the coin, but later entered common use. These coins were made at some point during the Lord Ruler's 1000 year reign, but it is unclear exactly when.
This Ash-Blackened Boxing of The Final Empire from the world of Brandon Sanderson is struck from solid brass, measures 3 cm in diameter, and weighs about 15.5 grams. Coin artwork by Isaac Stewart, Ben McSweeney and Woody Maringer.

No two 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 and facts about the coin.
