The Stark Game of Thrones 1 Oz Silver Coin is the first release in the popular TV series that became a worldwide phenomenon. Today, we revisit castle black and have a deeper look at what this coin has to offer.
House Stark of Winterfell is a Great House of Westeros and the royal house of the Kingdom of the North. It was led by Eddark Stark and his wife Catelyn Stark who has 5 children, Robb, Bran, Rickon, Arya, Sansa and the foster son Jon Snow. The story revolves around these characters that took place across 8 seasons with dramatic deaths and ending.
House Stark’s sigil is a grey direwolf and their family motto is a warning that “Winter Is Coming.”
Measuring 40.6 mm in diameter, the Stark silver coin is made from the popular America Eagle 1 Oz Silver coin. The reverse of the coin shows the direwolf logo of House Stark alongside its motto “WINTER IS COMING”. Looking at this image reminds me of the scene between Eddark Stark and his daughter Arya. “Look at me. You’re a Stark of Winterfell, you know our words”. The image is printed over the reverse of the America Eagle Silver Coin which has the inscription “LIBERTY” and on the right, the inscription: “IN GOD WE TRUST”- the American motto.
The obverse of the coin shows the Iron Throne upon which the King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men sat. Located in King’s Landing, the one who sat on this chair made from swords surrendered by its enemies and forged by Aegon Targaryen’s dragon, Balerion is the ruler of the seven kingdom. This image overlays the the USA Coat of Arms and the inscriptions: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” – the issue country.
The coin is housed in a black stylish case which is packed in a black box that shows the sigil of house stark, the grey direwolf. The coin also comes with a certificate of authencity and is limited to just 250 pieces worldwide.
House Stark is the first of the many famous house to be starred alongside this series. It is perfect for those that love the Game of Thrones show and a memorable keepsake. “The North Remembers”.
