Shire Post Mint | Game of Thrones | Black Goat of Qohor Coin Copper

A Sacrifice of blood to the Black Goat.

Description from Shire Post Mint

On the river Qhoyne between the dense forest of Qohor to the west and the vast plains of the Dothraki Sea to the east lies Qohor, easternmost of the nine Free Cities of Essos. The Qohorik worship the Black Goat who demands daily blood sacrifices. Mainly cattle or horses, sacrifices on holy days are convicted criminals. Qohor was colonized by followers of the Black Goat, religious dissidents who abandoned Valyria and rejected religious tolerance practiced by the Valyrian Freehold. The unrivaled Qohorik smiths are the only ones who still know how to rework Valyrian steel and are able to infuse deep colors into their armor.

This heavy copper coin features the Black Goat with bulging eyes and twisted horns. A drop of blood is shown above its head, representing the blood sacrifices it desires. The text on the reverse, inscribed in Valyrian, roughly translates to "Qohor With Blood," a reminder of the sacrifices due each day.

Minting process

Treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated, this process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two are exactly the same. 

Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with history and facts about the coin.
