Love these coins!

It’s very cool to be able to hold these real examples of what these incredibly well designed and minted “coins of the realm” may have looked and felt like during the stories in which they’re based. Totally high quality with a seemingly infinite amount of detail on each - highly recommended!

Wish I'd heard of this company sooner

Really impressed by the quality of the craftmanship, the packaging, and the attention to detail. My husband, who is a huge LOTR and Hobbit fan, was extremely happy with my surprise gift for him. Absolutely would purchase again.

Middle Earth in your pocket!

This is a great set of coins. I’ve been doing a re-read of LOTR and I love carrying these in my pocket, it gives me a little connection to Tolkien’s world throughout my day. As always with Shire Post Mint, all the coins look fantastic. My favorite is the Far Harad coin, such a neat little coin!

Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.

We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
