This small silver "stag" piece is from the Iron Islands in the mythical realm of Westeros shortly after the death of King Robert Baratheon, about three hundred years after Aegon I Targaryen united the warring kingdoms of Westeros under one ruler. Westeros is the scene of events taking place in the series of novels by author George R.R. Martin now also an HBO miniseries winning critical acclaim. This piece has been struck on a plancet of 1/10 troy ounce (3.1 grammes) of .999 pure silver, about 21mm in diameter. While it appears late in the story, it is designed in an older traditional "country" style with a stylized portrait of Balon Greyjoy, declaring himself Lord of the Iron Islands in defiance of the crown held by Joffrey. Balon wears a crown and holds an axe and a great pearl, signifying that he wields sea-power. The reverse shows the Kraken, sigil of House Greyjoy... the great sea monster capable of pulling ships to the bottom and feeding upon their crews. If you have not had a chance to catch any of George's novels, they are widely available in bookstores and libraries. The series is called A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE and currently there are six sequential novels out of a planned series of seven. The first is A GAME OF THRONES, which is also the title of the current hot HBO series based on the novels. This fantasy coinage is officially licensed through George R.R. Martin and brought to you by Shire Post, specializing in crafting strange and unusual artifacts from all over the universes for the purpose of making the fantasy come alive.
