The coat of arms you see in gift shops is a representation of a coat of arms of someone of that surname. It doesn’t belong to everyone of the surname. It belongs to a particular grantee and their direct descendants only.
A coat of arms costs €4,400. There have been 1,020 Grants or Confirmations of Arms made by the office since 1943, when the first Chief Herald was appointed.
