The Cormyrean Coins Coster was founded in Wheloon and was in business by 1358 DR. They were a small but fast-growing company, and aggressively competitive, being known to get into conflicts—and winning—against older, larger costers and even against Zhentarim agents.
Following continued efforts to smuggle jewels inside vegetables, operations were shut down in Eleasias of 1374 DR, while the Coiners sorted out their legal problems. This left their Impil Street warehouses unoccupied and half-empty. After two weeks, the remaining stock of fruit and vegetables went to waste, and one warehouse was infested by bats. Londal Fen and Smile would potentially use the location to trap and ambush those investigating the local cult of Shar.
The Cormyrean Coins Coster was a shipping business based in Wheloon. It operated in all ports of Cormyr and Sembia, and had routes to Ilipur, Teziir, and Westgate. The Coiners used small, fast coastal boats over the sea and wagons throughout Cormyr and Sembia.
The coster's primary business, and the one that made the most legitimate profits, was importing and exporting perishable goods. This included foodstuffs such as fruit and vegetables, which they supplied to restaurants. However, they also repeatedly smuggled gems and jewelry inside hollowed-out vegetables, which often got them into legal trouble.
The Cormyrean Coins Coster was led by a former adventuring group, and had a proud and aggressive attitude. The Coiners fought with, and wiped out, those who disrupted their trade, including older, larger costers and even Zhentarim agents.
