Limited Edition Coins - Final Minting

An extraordinary set of Limited Edition collectible coins based upon legendary game designer Sandy Petersen's vision of the Cthulhu Mythos.

These coins are ONLY being minted this year.  After this minting, the molds will be DESTROYED and they will NEVER be minted again.

In March we had a Kickstarter for the first 11 coins. The coins received fantastic reviews and were delivered TWO MONTHS early.

We are now releasing the FINAL 4 coins! However, you can also select from the first set that was released.

  • Amazing 3D sculpted artwork.
  • Coins are made from a solid zinc alloy metal.
  • Coins are 2 inches (50.8 mm) in diameter.
  • Each coin weighs about 2 ounces.
  • Coins are about 4 mm thick.
  • The year minted is displayed in Roman Numerals.
  • Each coin comes with a display stand.
  • Coins can also be used as game markers or first player tokens.

You can choose any combination of the below 15 coins.  In addition, each coin comes with a display stand. 

The coins make a great gift for your Cthulhu friends and fellow gamers! 

Our official delivery date is December. However, we are shooting for November. On our last project, we delivered TWO months early.

All coins come with a thick acrylic type plastic display stand.  It comes in two pieces and you insert them together like an X. 

Below is a video showing all the coins.  The video allows you to see the dimensional details and plating colors better than the photographs.  There is no narration, just background music.

For previous backers, the new coins are shown at the 2:50 mark.

Below are some of the comments that we received for the March release of Cthulhu Mythos coins:  

Alex L: The coins arrived safe and sound today in France. They're awesome as many already told you. I'm glad to add them to my ever growing mythos collection. Thanks a lot for a great campaign!

Sandra Richter: We absolutely love our coins and display them proudly.

Jonathan Jackson: These things are freaking SICK!

Dan Moody: My coins arrived! They are absolutely beautiful.

Jonathan: Coins have arrived here in Singapore. The quality is amazing, and the delivery fast and efficient. This kickstarter really has shown great service quality.

STooGE$$$$: Got mine today and am so glad I got the full set. Every one is awesome. 

Rip Odebralski: @J.M. Ward, got mine today, they're fantastic. Now the haunting question remains...are you going to do coins for the two new factions? 

knockNrod: Got mine yesterday! As always, they're spectacular! Thank you guys again.

Chris Chacon: Came in today. beautiful. thanks for all your hard work. completely amazing how quickly this one came to.

As most of you know, Sandy Petersen is the legendary game designer who is an expert on the Cthulhu Mythos.  He used his interpretation and vision of the mythos to create the award winning Call of Cthulhu role playing game.  After that, he created the award winning Cthulhu Wars board games.  Next he adapted the Cthulhu Mythos to both Pathfinder and D&D 5E.  

In the board game world, you can't find a better and more passionate Cthulhu expert than Sandy.

Sandy has also worked in the video game world on Civilization, Doom, Quake, Age of Empires, and Halo Wars.

My name is Joe Ward and I am the owner of Ultimate Custom Coins.  We have teamed up with Sandy Petersen to create the Cthulhu Mythos coins.  

My wife and I have had nine successful Kickstarter projects.  All of these projects had fantastic reviews and were delivered ON TIME or EARLY.  We take the trust backers place in us very serious and we will be handling this project and coordinate all fulfillment operations. We answer most questions and comments within minutes.

I am also the creator of Dice Coins.  We have sold over 35,000 Dice Coins in the last several months to fantastic reviews.  The Cthulhu Mythos coins are part of our Metallic Legends line of collectible coins.  They are identical in quality to the Dice Coins - same size, material, thickness -everything except they are not designed to function as Dice Coins.  They are designed to be amazing collectible coins.  

This project is Euro friendly for import taxes/duties. You should not be charged any additional taxes/duties if you are in the European Union. 

For ALL other countries, any import taxes/duties are your responsibility.  

These are the shipping rates for the 4 coin to 11 coin pledge levels:

Canada is $19 - European Union is $24 - Australia is $26 - Rest of the World is $27

These are the shipping rates for the 12 coin to 20 coin pledge levels:

Canada is $29 - European Union is $36 - Australia is $38 - Rest of the World is $39

This is the shipping rate for the 30 coin pledge level:

Canada is $58 - European Union is $70 - Australia is $76 - Rest of the World is $78

International shipping rates are terrible.  We wish they were not this high and we don’t make any money off of shipping.  After exploring numerous options, this is the best we can do.  So why are they so high?

First, Kickstarter takes 9% from the shipping charges we collect.  We then have to buy packing boxes, filler material, tape, labels, and pay some labor charges when we need assistance.  Our coins are small, but heavy, and we have a very short delivery time compared to a typical board game project.  So we ship them by air from the United States to our international backers.  This is not cheap.  

If the coins are shipped to the EU, we pay the 20% VAT import tax on not only the import value of the coins/stands but the cost of shipping them by air.  In addition, there is a processing fee for the shipment.  Our fulfillment partner then charges us to process the order.  We then get charged the actual freight charges to ship from within the EU.  When we pay our fulfillment partner, there is a 3% payment processing fee.  As you can see, it all unfortunately adds up.

Plastic Sleeves

Cthulhu coins come in a plastic sleeve.  We check the sleeves prior to shipping but even with our best efforts, sometimes during shipping the seams may rip or the sleeves may get damaged with rough travel.  We can't control this so we consider the sleeves disposable packaging.  If it comes in good condition, that is a bonus.  If not, we can't replace them. The plastic stands also come in disposable packaging.

Risks and challenges

This our 10th Kickstarter project. All nine of the previous ones have been delivered EARLY or ON TIME. We have a lot of experience making coins with our challenge coin company. This is what we do and we have never missed a promised delivery date.
