Coins struck by Daniel ben Abraham for Rørik and Karina's coronation
The Metalworkers' Guild of Caid.
Having existed unofficially for several years, the Guild was officially founded by Daniel ben Abraham in AS XXXII. At the inception of the Guild at Rørik and Karina's coronation, hand-struck silver coins by Daniel ben Abraham were presented to seated royalty. Other struck coins were thrown to the assembled populace. After Master Daniel ben Abraham stepped down as Guildmaster, the position was held for some time by Robindra of the Isles.
