Balon Greyjoy Silver Stag Coin
Balon Greyjoy, father of Theon and Asha, declared himself King of the Iron Islands during the War of the Five Kings. As an Iron Islander, Balon followed the Old Ways of taking property by force, so this coin was probably minted on top of old Aerys II Targaryen silver Stags that were stolen during a raid. The coin features a crowned Balon, claiming kingship, holding an axe and a great pearl, symbolizing his mastery over the sea. The reverse has the Kraken sigil of House Greyjoy. A Stag is worth 7 Stars, or 56 copper Pennies.
