Shire Post coins return via Kickstarter

Independent mint, Shire Post, have announced a range of licensed Middle-earth based coins via Kickstarter.

Shire Post, which formerly produced unlicensed Middle-earth coinage for the Shire, has been granted a licence from Middle-earth Enterprises to produce a new range of coins. The coins on offer include a Shire farthing, a penny from Rohan, and a silver Shire sixpence. With a target of $8,000, they have already smashed through their target and have so far realised over $50,000 in funding – this means that these coins will definitely become a reality and promise to deliver them by Christmas for the first 300 backers.
