Three coins of the Shire. For the Hobbit at heart, this layered pendant necklace contains a set of three coins from the Shire in the J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.
A 30" chain holds three coins from The Shire coins: a brass Shire Tuppence, a copper Shire Penny, and a tiny copper Shire Farthing. Coin text is inscribed in Tengwar. The coins will each feature a tree that will be one of the following variants: pine, elm, willow, and oak. The card inside provides translation of the coin text on each coin.
The coins in this set are from Middle-Earth; the world of J. R. R. Tolkien. The coins are struck from solid copper and brass, measure 1 to 2.2 cm in diameter, and weigh .5 to 7 grams. Coin artwork and engraving by Greg Franck-Weiby. The plated necklace chain is 30", certified nickel free.
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, translations, and facts about the coins.
