Loreon Lannister Golden Lion Coin
A Lannister always pays his debts
- solid brass
- Loreon Lannister and text "Lannister"
- lion, prey, and text "Hear Me Roar"
- 1" (2.5 cm) diameter
A hefty golden coin that features Loreon Lannister donning a lion head helmet and the word “Lannister”. A lion attacking its prey is shown above the Lannister house words “Hear Me Roar”.
The thick coin was minted by the first known Lannister King, Loreon I Lannister. He was nicknamed “Loreon the Lion” and “Loreon the Golden”. He married a daughter of House Reyne of Castamere, making them his vassals. A fierce leader, Loreon defeated the last Hooded King of the Age of Heroes and fed the body to his lions. This coin would have been made in abundance at the time since the stone of Casterly Rock was rich with gold ore.
