The Hobbit™ Set #1 - The Shire™ Set of Four Coins

What Does a Hobbit Have in His Pockets?

This set of pure copper coins contains a heavy SHIRE™ Thrup'ny, Shire Penny, Shire Haypenny, and a tiny Shire Farthing. Coin text is inscribed in Tengwar. The coins feature trees including plum, pine, elm, willow, and oak.

The coins in this set from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien are struck from solid copper, measure 1 to 2.2 cm in diameter, and weigh .5 to 7 grams. Coin artwork by Greg Franck-Weiby.

The set contains coins treated to look as if they have been handled and circulated within their world. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science. Coloring and patinas will vary. No two sets 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, translations, and facts about the coins.

Hobbit coins!

Really neat coinage! Looks like the real thing! Would love to carry them in a pouch, but afraid I'd try to use them! Love to see more LOTR coinage!

Perfect gift!

I got this set for my dad and it was really the perfect gift. The quality of the coins is definitely the highest, and the packaging and presentation was lovely and even a little personalized - they hand wrote my dad's name in a fancy script on the outside of the envelope. Will definitely be back for future gifts. :)
