"These Freys are Cursed"
After violating the sacred notion of guest right at the infamous Red Wedding, Walder Frey became one of the most despised men in Westeros, even by his allies. The superstitious say that Frey's coin is cursed, and examples can be found with his image defaced in an attempt to nullify the coin's bad luck. At least three types are known to exist, one with a plain X over his face, one known as the “Death’s Head” variety with a skull over Frey’s face, and another with a woman’s stern figure, known as “Caetlyn’s Curse. All are thought to deflect the curse from the bearer of the coin and onto heirs of House Frey.
The penny's obverse features a somewhat younger Lord Frey, inscribed with the year 299 AC (After Conquest) and L.O.T.C. for "Lord of the Crossing." The reverse depicts Frey's two bridged castles, The Twins, over the Green Fork of the river Trident.

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.
