It is customary when a new king is crowned to have coins minted in his honor. And throughout their rule, more coinage will bear the kings likeness. This Copper Star of King Robert Baratheon bears the likeness of the king late into his rule. The coin is struck using great force, just like the coins of old, and is crafted from pure copper. The obverse shows off the profile of King Robert along with his name, while the reverse reveals a seven-pointed star, surrounded by the words WESTEROS and OLDTOWN. This coin is licensed by George R. R. Martin, and corresponds to the coinage used in his novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire. That makes this Copper Star of King Robert Baratheon an awe-inspiring collectible to own, as well as a great gift to give too.
The star on the coin is symbolic of many things – the seven points represent the Sept, a religion in Westeros dedicated to the seven gods. The seven points also represent the seven kingdoms that make up Westeros and fall under Roberts rule.
