It may be a little late for Christmas shopping, but there are many holidays and celebrations at this time of year (and if you’ve been wondering about holiday gift ideas, we hope you’ve checked out our Holiday Gift Guide); and of course it’s never too late to treat yourself! So we thought our readers would like to know about the beautiful Elvish Four Leaf Set recently released by our friends at Shire Post Mint.
The four coins are shaped like holly leaves, and are in different metals to represent the four seasons. Shire Post Mint say, ‘Also known as Eregion (meaning Land of the Holly in Sindarin), Hollin was an Elven Realm of the Noldorin Elves during the Second Age. It was located near the West Gate of Moria, or Khazad-dûm. These coins were made by the Noldorin Elves while under the rule of Celebrimbor, the great Elven-smith and forger of the Rings of Power. Hollin was later destroyed during the War of the Elves and Sauron.’
You can read more about this stunning set here, and can see full details and place an order here. Coins have been considered lucky New Year presents in many cultures – perhaps start 2017 with a talisman for the good fortune you hope to see throughout the year?

One month on from New York ComicCon , we thought readers might enjoy a gallery of images from the event – to see the fun which unfolded in the Big Apple, and perhaps to reminisce, if you were there!
Big thanks to all who came and visited TORn’s booth this year. The convention was bigger than ever, and fighting one’s way around the show floor is no easy feat! It is always a delight to meet with fellow fans, and we loved chatting with all who came by – or who joined us at the ‘Fan Meet-up’ on Saturday night. And of course it was a joy to hang out with everyone who joined us on the Thursday evening for our annual ‘Ringers take Manhattan’ party. Special thanks to Graham McTavish for coming along, and being a true gent to all the partygoers. (more…)

Staffers from TORn have started arriving in the Big Apple to set up our booth – that means New York ComicCon is almost upon us! The fun kicks off at 10am tomorrow morning; here are some of the highlights for Tolkien fans:
First of all, TORn’s booth this year is number 3164. This is NOT our usual corner spot – we could only get an ‘inline’ booth this year. But look for the usual ‘tent’ and you’ll find us! As ever, we’ll have t-shirts and buttons for sale, and we have some fabulous items for our ‘lucky dip’ giveaways! It’s an election year even in Middle-earth; here are the t-shirts we’ll have on sale this year: (more…)

Middle-earth’s Diner is back! Denny’s new Hobbit menu is available in their restaurants from today. Judging by all the preparation and hard work Denny’s have been putting in over the past months, and to which we at TheOneRing.net have been privy, this should be a fun and tempting menu!
