About This Precious…

Take No Prisoners

Though the Dread Pirate Roberts never made any of his own coinage, Shire Post Mint thinks he could have made coins that looked like this! This heavy copper coin is dated 1721 and features grinning a pirate's face with a blade in his teeth.

On the reverse, a skull and crossbones and the inscription, TNP for Take No Prisoners. The coin that never was for pirate legend Bartholomew Roberts, Black Bart, the Dread Pirate Roberts. Perfect for any pirate hoard.

This Dread Pirate Roberts Coin from the world of the Great Pirates is struck from solid copper, measures 2.4 cm in diameter, and weighs about 8.2 grams. Coin artwork by Tom Maringer.

Tom Maringer, previously a swordsmith, began making coins in 2003 for George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. Yes indeed, a genuine Game of Thrones sword/coinsmith made this. We know, we're dead from nerdgasm too.

About the Brand

Shire Post Mint aims to keep traditional coinmaking alive. Designs are hand-engraved into tool steel, the design is hardened, then mounted into an antique coin press, and struck into solid metals like copper, bronze, silver, iron, brass, and niobium. The coins are antiqued to perfect the patina and give them a lovely softness in the hand. Read the rest of the Shire Post Mint story here.
