This is the Iron Coin of the Faceless Man. It is used as a challenge coin among fans of the GAME OF THRONES television show. The way it works is to show a coin and say the words: "Valar Morghulis" and they must answer with the proper response or be deemed dweebs. Even if you know the correct words you also need to show your own coin to escape having to buy the next round. In the Game of Thrones story it is a recognition token used by a secretive guild of assassins. One of the characters, Arya Stark, obtains the coin and experiences some interesting adventures with it. This example of the coin is made by Shire Post Mint from high purity iron, distressed, patinated, and waxed, and can be found on eBay, Amazon.com, ThinkGeek, HBO store, and several other online retailers. Mintage (combining the thirteen currently known types) is slightly over twenty thousand pieces. There are also two different chicom counterfeits of this coin in circulation. They can easily be discerned because neither is made of iron and they are non-magnetic pot-metal castings.





The coin is about 1 1/16 inch (27mm) in diameter and weighs about six grams. The size and weight are important for a true challenge coin that must always be carried. Most objects being called "challenge coins" in the market place are actually "presentation coins", being far too large and heavy for operational personnel to carry in action.

There are two known chicom counterfeits of this coin. Both lack detail under the cowl, and both are oversize pot-metal die castings and are non-magnetic. The real one can be picked up by a magnet, but cannot be made to become a magnet. (it is high-purity iron, NOT steel)

Was given this one by Art Thompson after I took him on a tandem parachute jump! He was the Technical Director for the Red Bull Stratos project.

@Circus



Here is the best of both worlds for me. A challenge coin combing my two main hobbies:

The coin design includes a representation of a telegraph insulator made for the B&O RR in the 1870s. The embossing on the actual piece is different than the coin. Value of the insulator? About 25-35.00.

The coin? The club sells them for 10.00.



On, the black graphite impurities/swirls in the glass are the numismatic equivalent of a "woody" cent.
