This heavy copper is from Westeros, the scene of the mythological events taking place in the series of novels by author George R.R. Martin and features the left facing profile of King Robert Baratheon early in his reign. In fact, some think that they may have been struck even before Robert sought the throne.
Scholars of that bent note that he wears no crown! It is undated (as are most ancient coins) but is thought to have been struck at the Oldtown mint sometime before the 297th year after Aegon’s conquest united the seven kingdoms of Westeros. It weighs about 9 grams of pure copper, about the price of a bite and a cuppa if you’re not too picky about how clean the utensils are.
