Elvish Four Leaf Set


Four Leaves for Four Seasons

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.

The coins take the shape of the holly leaf and are struck in varying metals to distinguish their denominations. The Fall Leaf in copper is the smallest denomination, followed by the Winter Leaf in silver, and then the golden Summer Leaf. The Spring Leaf in Mithril is the largest denomination, worth ten times as much as the golden Summer Leaf.

The coins in this set from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien are struck from solid copper, brass, silver, niobium and .999 silver, measure 2.7 cm in diameter, and weigh 6.4 to 7.1 grams.

Detallada y con historia de fondo

La moneda en forma de hoja esta muy detallada y perfectamente acuñada, sin que el tratamiento posterior haya desvanecido las runas y las tengwar. El reto sera dar el paso de hacer la traduccion manual de lo que viene en la descripcion. El hecho de haber escogido para Eregion (Hollin / Accebeda) esta doble escritura concuerda con lo narrado o cerca de la amistad entre enanos y elfos en esta region de la Tierra Media en su momento.
