Iron Drab of Ceald
Thick Iron Currency from Ceald
A heavy trapezoid shaped coin is made from pure iron and comes from Ceald, a country in the northwest of the Four Corners of Civilization. The Cealdim were the first to establish a standardized currency, and to the present day Cealdish currency can be used throughout the Four Corners. We presume that the earliest money was made literally by sawing slices from ingots of metal. In more recent times they are no longer made in this way, but retain the same shape through custom and tradition. It features a simple stamp of a mountain and lake, the symbol of Ceald. Wilem, one of Kvothe's best friends and a student at The University, is Cealdish.
This Iron Cealdish Drab from the world of Patrick Rothfuss is struck from solid iron, measures 3 cm in diameter, and weighs about 29.6 grams. Coin artwork by Tom Maringer.
The product is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two 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 and facts about the coin.
