Golden Dragons From the Shire

At worldcon this year, Tom Maringer and his bawdy band of coinsmiths debuted three new coins, the first "golden" dragons from Shire Post Mint.

They even did a video about it:




These dragon coins bear the likenesses of Jaehaerys I Targaryen (the Old King), the pretender Daemon I Blackfyre, and Joffrey I Baratheon.

(No, silly, they're not made of real gold.  If they were, they would be considerably more expensive.  They look good, though; bright and shiny with a nice heft to them.  And if there is enough demand, Shire Post Mint might even do a short run in real gold for collectors willing to pay the price.)
