This coin from the world of J. R. R. Tolkien is struck from solid .999 silver, measures 2.4 cm in diameter, and weighs 5 grams, or 1/8 of a troy ounce. Coin artwork and engraving by Greg Franck-Weiby.
The coin is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated within its world. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science. Coloring and patinas will vary. No two coins are exactly the same! 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.

If you are giving this as a gift and would like a different name on the envelope, please include the recipient's name in the Special Instructions field as you complete your order.
