 Product Description

Dark Castle Collectibles Limited Edition Exclusive Antique Brass Version. Only 20 produced!

Genuine Shire Post Mint product! Made in the U.S.A. Officially licensed. 

Vlad III, Vlad Tzepesh (the Impaler), Vlad III Dracula (aka: Dragulea), Prince of Wallachia, son of the house Drăculești, a branch of the House of Basarab, born of a line of Wallachian voivodes, or warlords of Wallachia,which later became Romania and Transylvania, but nowadays is known as Romania. 

But, some people just call him Dracula… Bram Stoker’s famous tale of Dracula, the vampire was inspired by the true-life deeds of the prince of Wallachia. 

At the beginning of his rise to power, he was well known for being a reat general in the fight to keep the Ottaman Turk army out of Wallachia. He became a folk hero in the war, with people flocking from all around to join his fight against the Turks. Then, when he was imprisoned, something happened to him. His father was betrayed and killed, and when he was released, his deeds turned evil. Without going into too many horrible details, let’s just say they were bad. 

Dracula: it means son of the Dragon. Vlad’s father was a part of the Order of the Dragon, an organization that was formed to protect Christianity. Vlad’s father was so ingrained into this organization, he renamed himself: Dracul (Dragon), and so Vlad’s nickname was Dracula, a diminutive which meant “Son of the Dragon.”

This coin is from the fictionalized days of his triumph (although temporary one) over the Ottaman Turks. It is fantasy coinage with a denomination of one penny, thus a Vlad Dracula Copper Penny that is made of approximately 1/10 ounce of brass.

    I love this little coin. I carry it in my pocket as an extra fidget toy. I also plan on using it for a quest item in an upcoming campaign. It is very well made and the detail is excellent.
