Hobbit Coins

From this Salon.com article:
New Zealand, the backdrop of sweeping cinematic scenes from “The Lord of the Rings” and the upcoming trilogy “The Hobbit,” is issuing a series of Hobbit coins.
It looks pretty much like a gold coin but with a rim inscribed, in both English and Dwarvish, with the words ‘Middle-earth – New Zealand.’


  1. Well, they sold out New Zealand's labour laws, so its not surprising that the national mint was thrown in as an extra.

  2. I dearly hope they become known as "BrandyBucks".
