Black Skull of Crom Decision Coin

Product Info

Crom, count the dead! This blackened coin was made to pay homage to the Cimmerian diety, Crom, whose chief function is to count the dead in battle. Crom watches and judges all, and it may be better to avoid his attention, as he likely brings trouble and doom. The use of Crom's name as a curse identifies Conan as a Cimmerian. The obverse of this coin bears a skull, while the reverse depicts a stylized vulture and the inscription, "Crom Counts the Dead" inscribed in Icelandic Elder Futhark runes.

This Black Skull of Crom from the world of Robert E. Howard is struck from solid nickel bronze, measures 2.4 cm in diameter, and weighs about 4.7 grams. Coin artwork by Woody Maringer. The product is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two are exactly the same!
