- Breakable (really!)
"I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings…”
-Kvothe, Name of the Wind
As King in life, Feyda is shown in chainmail flanked by soldiers below the sun. He holds a map and a downward pointing sword. As King in death, the barrow draug Wizard King Feyda holds an upward pointing sword and a branch of hemlock. Behind him are Greystones and a crescent moon. Feyda Calanthis was posthumously declared the first king of Tarvintas.
This coin was struck after Feyda died and is thinner than the coins struck when he was alive. The Penny is scored in such a way that it can be bent and broken in two - resulting in two Vintish Half Pennies. If you break this Penny to make change, it is only polite to offer the other party the choice of which half to keep.
Breaking your coin:
This coin can be broken without the use of any tools. We suggest pressing the coin against the corner of a table or windowsill to start the bend, then bend back and forth by hand until it breaks. Warning: this process is very satisfying and may become addictive. In our tests, there isn't much of a sharp edge on the Half Pennies. We recommend rubbing any sharp edge onto the other coin edge or on a rock to smooth the coins for daily carry.

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.

I love these books and therefore am always on the lookout for any related memorabilia! The packaging is great! I wish they didn’t use tape as it tore some of the packaging but aside from that couldn’t be happier to support Pat in all of his endeavors. The wax seals are an awesome touch! Thanks.
Love it! Super unique.
I love this company they are amazing among my top favorites! The penny was so good I got it and a pair of drabs for my partner because we both love the book, my partner to break the penny they loved it!!
The idea behind the Vintish penny was always really a fun idea. How do you break some money if you've got no change? why not just snap it in half? It's an amazing design with amazing details! But also, looking forward to reading 'doors of stone' whilst I flip the penny across my fingers - it's a way to be connected to a story and a world I've never experienced!
The coin is awesome. I will get more fantasy coins like this one in the near future
