Volantis Honors Set of Two
The City Thirsts for War
A hot, humid city that sits on the Summer Sea in southern Essos, the Free City of Volantis is governed by members of two political parties: the merchant Elephants and the warrior Tigers. This set of two golden Honors struck in brass features coins minted by each party. Both coins have a skull, or "death's head", on one side and the party animal, crown, and the Valyrian words, "First Men of the First Blood" on the other. However, the two designs are unique as the rival parties would not have shared engravers or specific designs.
The coins in this set from the world of George R. R. Martin are struck from solid brass, measure 2 cm in diameter, and weigh 3.8 grams. Coin artwork by Woody Maringer.
The set contains coins treated to look as if they have been handled and circulated within their world. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science. Coloring and patinas will vary. No two sets 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 and facts about the coin.
