THE SHIRE™ Pennies

  • Each coin is 2.8 grams of solid copper

Four Pennies in pure copper from The Shire. Each denomination of Shire coinage has 4 variations featuring different trees. This four tree group contains all four possible trees: pine, elm, willow, and oak. The most common coin found in the pocket of a fairly well-to-do Hobbit, it features a tree and the words “One Penny of the Shire, Abode of the Hobbits.” On the reverse, the four directions and quarters of The Shire and “Shire Year,” the date, and “Michel Delving,” the de facto capital of The Shire. Coin text is inscribed in Tengwar.

Longtime buyer — These coins are perfect, included as part of a project for my kids; they added an unrivaled degree of authenticity. Will definitely purchase from Shire Post Mint again.

These are such incredible little pieces of work, and the presentation/packaging goes above and beyond. I love how each one in the set I got has a slightly different patina.
