I love how the coins turned out, and I love how they are all hand made, would buy more.

Great, Really High Quality

The coins were delivered in a little plastic packet, separated from each-other, which kept them from damaging one-another in the post. Bought as a gift, he really liked them! Will be back to buy more; great presentation, and beautiful coins. Delivered to England, and really pleased with the product. Looking forward to seeing more of your products :) Thank you!

It's a unique buying experience!

Getting items from the Shire Post is like getting goodies from a Wizard... you're bound to get a "magical" experience with the personalized way the items are presented and made!

Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.

We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
