This silver “stag” piece is from Westeros late in the tenure of the Targaryen kings, some 280 years after the unification of that land by the event known historically as Aegon’s Conquest. This particular piece is struck in 1/10 troy ounce of pure .999 fine silver, about 21mm in diameter, done in primitivistic “town” style with coarse engraving. The stylized portrait of King Aerys II is on the obverse. The king wears a crown and carries a boar-spear and firepot. Aerys II was often known as the “Mad King” due to his penchant for burning his perceived enemies to death in court.

He was murdered by his own king’s guard Jaime Lannister, and Aerys II was (understandably) the last in a long sequence of Targaryen kings. The reverse of this piece shows a simple stag done in the “country” style (as contrasted with the high-art style of Aegon I, the first Targaryen king), the stag again symbolizing the denomination of the coin… one “stag”. The O.T. mintmark at bottom signifies the Oldtown mint.
