Comments

Only a small number of these tokens were ever minted. They were given to the most senior brothers of the Night’s Watch and would be passed down to younger brothers for acts of courage, honor, or commitment to the order of the Night’s Watch. The small number of tokens were lost over time and the tradition faded away. From a time long past when taking the black was a great honor, steeped in valor. These non-monetary tokens were minted at Winterfell and sent to the Wall to help bolster morale and a sense of brotherhood.  Not many of these coins have survived and customs surrounding them is not clearly known.  

Fantasy coin produced by Shire Post Mint in Arkansas, USA. Coloring/patina process done by hand.
