Game of Thrones coins - The Coins of Westeros
Money is important in the world of Westeros, as any Lannister can tell you. Thanks to Shire Post Mint, who produces detailed Games of Thrones coins, you can now become the Master of Coin yourself!
With several coins featuring specific Houses and characters under their belt, a new Kickstarter project is well under way to develop another wave of coins.
Shire Post Mint is a misleading company name, but only in a really pedantic way, because they’re not based in the Shire. I should know I live in the shire, no I’m serious, and Tolkien’s Shire was influenced by Worcestershire where I currently live. Shire Post Mint is in fact based in those United States of America and makes its way in the world by minting licensed fantasy coins and at the moment they’re running a Kickstarter to fund a selection of Game of Thrones coins.
Shire Post Mint has been making official Westeros coins since 2003, long before HBO came along (and I’m embarrassed to say a long time before I had heard of the A Song of Fire and Ice books). So what’s this got to do with us gamers? These coins have been specifically designed to replace the cardboard coins used in A Game of Thrones the Card Game. They can also be used in any other circumstance where you want to replace boring old cardboard coins with shiny metals that make clinky noises when you throw them down.
