"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.

I love the attention to detail that this company puts into creating their coins!! I showed it to my gf (another NotW fan) and she wanted one for herself, too. The product includes an explanation for the imagery they put in it, which I thought was really interesting.
They also have superb shipping, I got my order in just a couple of days. Very satisfied about purchasing their amazing coins.
Great quality and I loved the letter it came in. A nerds dream
The coin is almost magical to me, both in appearance and in its connection to my favorite book series. It's very well made, but I fear that may be its downfall-- my sister and I have not yet been able to break it into half-pennies, no matter how many sharp-edged tables and window sills we pit it against. My thumbs are weakening as I type this, the efforts we've put into splitting this coin having all but completely exhausted them.
