Authentic Boxings and Clips from the world of Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. Hand-engraved and stamped in solid metals by Shire Post Mint in the USA. 

PRESS: Press Release, Images, contact us for additional assets.

 We are Shire Post Mint, a small family-run business in Arkansas, USA specializing in creating handmade, solid metal coins from some of our favorite worlds. We are best known for the licensed coins we make from A Game of Thrones™, The Lord of the Rings™, The Wheel of Time™, The Kingkiller Chronicle™, The Demon Cycle™, Conan® the Barbarian, and John Carter of Mars™. We are extremely excited to be working with Brandon Sanderson to create artifacts from the Cosmere, starting here on Kickstarter with his Mistborn™ series. 

We make our coins using antique machines and traditional coin making techniques. The designs are hand-engraved in steel, mounted into antique coin presses, and stamped one at a time into solid metals like copper and brass. Our coins are aged to look and feel like they've come straight from the pockets of your favorite characters. Because our coins are never cast or plated, they will not be damaged by heavy handling. In fact, our coins look the best when they have been handled for a while! Read more about our process.

We're releasing four brand new designs from the Mistborn novels. The coins come from two distinct time periods in the series: Era 1 (The Final Empire) and Era 2 (Elendel). The coin art was designed at Dragonsteel Entertainment by Isaac Stewart and inked by Ben McSweeney. Brandon Sanderson approved the design, metal, weights, and styles of each coin.  

Ash covers the fields. The Lord Ruler has ruled for a thousand years. Coins fill noble purses and are being used by Mistborn and Coinshot Mistings for a variety of useful or nefarious purposes. The two main coins used are golden Boxings and copper Clips.

"BOXING: The slang name for an imperial gold coin. The name comes from the picture on its back of Kredik Shaw, the Lord Ruler's palace—or, the 'box' in which he lives" - The Well of Ascension

Boxings of The Final Empire display a symbol and an image of Kredik Shaw, the Lord Ruler's palace. They are struck in solid brass. The text surrounding the palace reads "ONE IMPERIAL" inscribed in the Steel Alphabet. The edge of this coin is round and smooth from wear and minting technique. It was made at some point during the Lord Ruler's 1000 year reign, but it is unclear exactly when.

 "CLIP (COINAGE): The nickname for an imperial copper coin in the Final Empire. Commonly used by Mistborn and Coinshots for jumping and attacking." - The Well of Ascension

Copper Clips of the Final Empire are struck in solid copper. These small coins are used by nobles for purchases of small items. They feature a stylized image of the Lord Ruler surrounded by the words "ONE CLIP" inscribed in the Steel Alphabet. On the reverse is the symbol for copper and the number 1.

 About 300 years after The Final Empire, Elendel is the largest city in Elendel Basin and is the center of government. The metal currency used in the city follows the same denominations as Era 1: Boxings and Clips. Coins are used less often by Allomancers as there are more accessible bits of metal to be used for jumping and fighting, such as bullet casings. 

Boxings of Elendel feature the The Lord Mistborn in the fertile Elendel valley surrounded by the words "ELENDEL", "ONE BOXING" On the reverse is the First Central Bank surrounded by the symbol for the number 1. The same weight as the historical Era 1 Boxings, these are thick solid brass coins with a satisfying reeded (ridged) edge.

Copper Clips of Elendel are chunky solid copper coins. The obverse features the Ascendant Warrior wearing a detailed Mistcloak and surrounded by the name of the city "ELENDEL". On the reverse is the symbol for copper, the number 1, and the words "ONE CLIP".

"I am shocked at the speed in at which this was fulfilled. This ended a week ago and it's in my hands! Speed aside the product is phenomenal these coins could be used as currency for a real country." - Mike, a backer for our A Game of Thrones™ gaming coins

We pride ourselves on our lightning fast fulfillment. Within a few days of the end of the campaign, we will send out surveys via Backerkit. You'll confirm your shipping details and have the option to add more coins to your order. We'll start shipping as soon as rewards are ready. Some levels will ship within the month, others will ship when we receive elements like boxes and bags from our providers. We ship orders every day from our office in Arkansas. Fulfilling this Kickstarter will be our number one priority. We ship via USPS with tracking. When your order ships, you'll get an email notification with your tracking number to follow the coins to your mailbox. 

International backers (outside of the U.S.A.) We will hopefully be working with a new shipping company for our international orders which will help us reduce or remove customs fees. However, you may still have to pay customs fees to receive your reward. We will not devalue or mark your reward as a gift in order to bypass customs. That could shut our shop down and no one wants that!

Risks and challenges

We have fulfilled all of our previous projects in a timely manner. We are working with more outside artists and providers than in our previous campaigns. This increases risks of components (like boxes and bags) being lost in the mail or our space coins getting lost in the mountains (which has happened before) which means there is more shipping time needed for us to get all of the pieces of your pledge together before shipping it to you.
