Harrenhal the Black Coin
A coin salvaged after the Burning of Harrenhal
- solid copper
- Harren Hoare
- stylized Harrenhal fortress
- .8" (2 cm) diameter
This intricate coin was minted to celebrate the completion of the incredible fortress, Harrenhal. The largest castle in the Seven Kingdoms, it took 40 years to construct. Harren Hoare, King of the Isles and the Rivers, believed that the fortress could withstand any attack. Aegon I Targaryen began his Conquest of Westeros and the fortress fell shortly after under Balerion’s fire. It would later be known as the Burning of Harrenhal. This coin was found, blackened, in one of the deepest chambers after the Burning.
