Faceless Man Coin: Arya Stark receives this coin in the course of her adventures and initially discounts it as valueless. As it happens, this is not a “coin” in the usual sense at all, but a recognition token for members of the Faceless Man organization, a secretive mafia-like guild of assassins trained to alter their faces at will by both rigorous training and a form of magic. In the story… if someone gives you this coin and says the words: “Valar Morghulis”, (trans: “All Men Must Die”) then you have got to say the proper response: “Valar Dohaeris” (trans: “All Men Must Serve”) in order to save your life. Arya eventually comes to understand the significance of the coin, along with us, as the story progresses. In real life many fans of George’s novels are using these as “challenge” coins during gatherings or “cons”. That is… you show your coin and say the words, and if the other person can’t show their coin in response then they “must serve”… as in… go fetch the next round of drinks! All in good fun!

The coin is struck in metallurgical grade Pure Iron (not steel!) on dies hand-engraved by the late Greg Franck-Weiby, and comes with a blackened and pastewaxed finish. They weigh about 6 grams and are about 26mm in diameter, and they have a bright “ring” sound when flipped in the air. A shadowy face peers from under a deep cowl. It is a testament to Greg’s skill that the face can seem to change as it is turned in the light… just as the faces of the Faceless Men themselves may change at will.

Inscriptions on reverse show an enciphered VDVM symbol in the center, with lettering around the rim spelling out VALAR MORGHULIS, VALAR DOHAERIS.
