RIVENDELL™ - MITHRIL™ Blue Moon Coin
A Blue Moon of Rivendell
This unique crescent moon coin comes from Rivendell (Imladris in Sindarin), during the rule of Elrond™. It depicts the Rivendell valley, flanked by waterfalls, containing the ancient trees of silver and gold and the three Silmarils, represented as stars.
On the reverse, the Sindarin text inscribed in Tengwar reads, “Elrond Halfelven, Lord of Rivendell and of the Last Homely House East of the Sea, 2941”. TA 2941 is the year that Thorin Oakenshield™ and company meet Elrond at Rivendell before continuing on to The Lonely Mountain.
The coins are struck in varying metals to distinguish their denominations. The Copper Moon is the smallest denomination, followed by the Silver Moon, and the Golden Moon. The Mithril Moon is the largest denomination, worth ten times as much as the Golden Moon.
This Rivendell Mithril Moon Necklace from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien is struck from solid niobium and anodized a deep and lovely blue. Color may vary slightly per batch between blue with green highlights to blue with purple highlights. It measures 3.17 cm in diameter, and weighs about 6 grams. Coin artwork designed by Dylan Craig and engraved by Woody Maringer.
Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with history, translations, and facts about the coins.

This coin was even more elegant than I expected. The color is deep and inscriptions clear. Whether due to the material or shape it feels a bit different from a standard item. It has a feel of elven to it.
absolutely gorgeous coin! unique and well made
This is another fine entry into the Rivendell Moon series of coins. The anodization of the niobium was well done; the blue color is striking. The details of the coin show the care SPM takes with their products.
Wonderful Moon coins, great communication. Smooth transaction!
Another great coin! Someday I'll have a collection as nice as Bilbo's.
