Nearly 35 years ago, the timeless book The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle was turned into an animated movie. With music by America, voices by Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow, Christopher Lee, Angela Lansbury, Alan Arkin, and Tammy Grimes, and the immense talent of the animators and creatives who would later form Studio Ghibli, The Last Unicorn was an incredible film that gripped the minds and hearts of all who grew up with it. The characters of Schmendrick, Molly Grue, the Harpy, Mommy Fortuna, Prince Lir, King Haggard, the Red Bull, the Butterfly and all the others, all helping or hindering the Unicorn on her quest. Though the movie was released decades ago, the music and iconic scenes and lines still echo through our minds.
This coin of the realm of King Haggard is an open reminder of the prophecy of the rise and fall of King Haggard, and of the wrath and ruin yet to come upon the citizens of Hagsgate. The greed and covetous nature of one wizened, haggard old king will prove the downfall of the town he rules over. Share his feast, and share his fall – that is the nature of the curse, and what better way to settle your bets or let fate decide than with the flip of a King Haggard coin! Measuring 1.37″ inches (38 mm) in diameter and 0.12″ inches thick (3mm), this hefty antique silver coin makes a great pocket charm or talisman to carry with you on your quest to find the last of the Unicorns.
