These are so well crafted, they could have indeed come straight from a Shire smithy. They’re currently living as “loose change” on top of a menu from the Prancing Pony in a corner of my smial.

Thank you for sharing! Though now I'm hungry...


Everything looks great they are smaller than expected but still great quality!

To there and back again

I got this as a gift for my dad this past xmas. He's a big Tolkien fan and loved the fact that the coins were small enough to fit Hobbit hands!
