Situated along the bottomlands of the White River in West Fork, Arkansas, Shire Post Mint is a small, family-run coining operation that specializes in licensed fantasy coinage.

Starting as a backyard hobby in 2001, Shire Post Mint has grown into an internationally recognized company known for attention to detail and a high level of craftsmanship, attaining officially licensed properties including JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings™, George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire™, Jim Henson’s Labyrinth™, and much more!


After constructing their new minting workshop, Shire Post reached out to our designers Chase and Tas of Biodesic Strategies to brainstorm ideas for addressing various issues on their landscape while creating a lovely nature experience for visitors. Challenges of flooding and erosion were mitigated by a network of rain gardens and mounds that have since resolved the hydrology issues on site.

The rain gardens were planted with a diverse pallet of native trees, shrubs and wildflowers and are now a certified national wildlife habitat. To complement the rain gardens and fantasy theme of the business, Biodesic also constructed a living willow dome and a food forest strip to add to the magic of this locally owned treasure.
