This coronation coin, or Crown, was minted in Gondor to celebrate the coronation of Aragorn as King Elessar Telcontar as well as his marriage to Arwen. He is shown on the obverse riding a horse and holding a flag with the White Tree of Gondor. Surrounding Aragorn, inscribed in Tengwar are the words "Elessar, Arwen, Gondor". On the reverse are the brothers Isildur and Anárion holding a shield featuring the White Tree. They stand on Andúril™ (meaning "Flame of the West"), Aragorn’s sword forged from the shards of Narsil. Below it are the Sevens Stones Palantíri and the words, "King Star" and "Year One" referring to the first year of the Fourth Age. Above the brothers are the seven stars of the House of Elendil. This heavy coin is mounted on a 30" silver colored chain.
This Gondor Crown coin is based on the Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. The celebration coin is struck from solid nickel silver, measures 3.2 cm in diameter, and weighs about 13.2 grams. Mounted on a 30" plated chain that is certified nickel-free. Coin artwork by Greg Franck-Weiby.
The product is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two 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.
