    What do you Collect?

    Thank you, Master of Coin! My latest Faceless Man order arrived yesterday and everything was in there. I have now completed three Iron Coin of the Faceless Man Sets of 13 that include all pressings to date. Here is a complete list of the Faceless Man coins I have picked up from Shire Post Mint so far. 3 x 1st pressing token 3 x 1st pressing geo-token (copper) 3 x 2nd pressing token 3 x 3rd pressing token 3 x 4th pressing token (rainbow-toned) 3 x 5th pressing token 3 x 5th pressing token (brass) 3 x 6th pressing token 3 x 6th pressing token (brass, drilled) 3 x 7th pressing token 3 x 8th pressing token 3 x 8th pressing token (niobium) 3 x 8th pressing token (triple-thick) plus... 2 x 6th pressing roll (24 tokens per roll) I have borrowed back the two sets I previously gifted so I can take photos. They are coming soon! "Valar Morghulis! Valar Dohaeris!"

    @Master of Coin: The new 8th's arrived today. They look awesome! Once I borrow back the other two sets, I will take one massive photo and lots of little ones for the forum. I love that you included the mintage details on the "Niobium" and "Thick" flip inserts. However, I did notice that the regular 8th pressing flips did not contain the small descriptive inserts like all of the previous pressings did. Are you moving away from the small inserts in favor of the larger ones?

    That is great news! No tracking info yet, but like everything else about the USPS, it is taking its sweet old time. Thanks for the quick turnaround. I look forward to their arrival.

    I can certainly make that happen. I just have to gather everything up again. One of each set was gifted to my best friend for his birthday and another to my dad on Father's Day, but I can borrow them for the photo. Forty-eight of the 6th pressing coins came in two rolls of 24, but luckily I kept the roll wrappers intact as a keepsake. I can just slide them back into their wrappers. I use the 48 loose 6th pressing coins as gaming chips for a rummy game I thought up. I simply reworked the rules for 500 Rummy and renamed it "Westeros Rummy." The fine folks at Shire Post Mint posted my instructions for the game on their website. If you are interested in playing Westeros Rummy, check it out here. My instructions are at the bottom of the post. I also have to wait until my six 8th pressing coins arrive. I bought them on Tuesday, but the Master of Coin is still assembling the order to ship.

    I can only speak for myself, but here is what appealed most to me about the Faceless Man coin... 1. First and foremost, the design. It is one of the most fascinating and attractive fantasy coins I have ever seen. 2. The price. It is a more affordable collectible than most other coins. Also, I am not worried so much about the initial cost affecting their value as I am with higher mintage numbers per pressing. But hey, I know you're trying to make a living, too. 3. The low mintage of the early pressings. I love rare things and the more rare, the better. 4. The variety in pressings. However, I would love to see more "interesting" changes in future pressings. 5. Its unique significance in the story. I look forward to seeing Arya put it to use. 6. The missing "h" did not bother me at all. In fact, I loved the way you creatively and rationally explained the mistake away. 7. It's from A Game of Thrones! Need I say more? I hope this helps. Now, in regards to the main thread - my Game of Thrones collection consists of pretty much Faceless Man coins. I have odd collecting habits. When I really like something, I have a tendency to become a completist. So, here is a list of the Faceless Man coins I have picked up from Shire Post Mint. I have gifted some to friends and family, but kept at least one from every pressing. 3 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 1st pressing 3 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 1st pressing (unreleased, copper geocoin) 3 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 2nd pressing 3 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 3rd pressing 1 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 4th pressing 3 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 4th pressing (limited, rainbow-toned) 3 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 5th pressing 3 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 5th pressing (brass replica) 51 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 6th pressing (consists of 2 rolls and a few singles) 3 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 6th pressing (brass replica, drilled) 2 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 7th pressing 2 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 8th pressing 2 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 8th pressing (limited, niobium) 2 x Iron Coin of the Faceless Man - 8th pressing (limited, triple-thick) Keep up the great work, Master of Coin!
