About the maker:
Tom Maringer, previously a swordsmith, began making coins in 2003 for George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. Since then, Shire Post Mint has grown into a family business that is now run by Tom's son Woody and daughter Helen. They now make over 150 unique coins from popular fantasy worlds and a myriad of original designs like their Moon Coin collection. All of their coins are still made in their Arkansas workshop.
