Warded Brass Klat of Leesha Paper - The Demon Cycle
Warded Against Demon Corelings
From the bestselling Demon Cycle novels by Peter V. Brett, including The Warded Man, The Desert Spear, The Daylight War, and The Skull Throne.
These brass coins were created by Countess Leesha Paper circa 334 AR to kickstart the economy after the Krasian conquest of southern Thesa flooded Hollow County with thousands of refugees. They were paid in inexpensive pressed wooden coins called klats, which could be used as food tokens and at general stores. As the Hollow economy strengthened, brass and silver coins were added to the currency.
The coins serve the dual purpose of providing succor from demons in the night. The wards around the circumference map out a basic circle of protection, and the coins themselves, if laid in a line, will repel demon corelings.
The obverse features the likeness of Countess Paper, while the reverse depicts her crest, the mortar and pestle. Each side of the klat is framed in a rotated ward circle, each ward protecting from a different demon.
This Warded Brass Klat of Leesha Paper from the world of Peter V. Brett is struck from solid brass, measures 3.9 cm in diameter, and weighs about 26.5 grams. Coin artwork by Woody Maringer, Tom Maringer, Lauren K. Cannon and Małgorzata Mitmańska.
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.

Bought this coin for a friend who absolutely adores The Demon Cycle book series. She carries this where ever she goes now!
The items looks fantastic and I was initially surprised by the weight.
Delivery took a long time due to COVID but that is expected. Would happily purchase again

My husband loved his gift!
The delivery came fairly quickly, the packaging is pretty cool too! I haven't seen the actual coin yet because it's a gift for someone else but I'm so excited to see his face when he opens it!
FYI for anyone out there that checks the reviews but doesn't read the description thoroughly (like me!), the packaging has the buyers name on it, so if you're buying this as a gift for someone, message the seller and let them know!
I love the quality of this item it looks so great person. Plus shipping was amazingly fast. Could not be happier with my order. Amazing!
