About this project
We are Campaign Coins from Australia. We make beautiful metal coins for tabletop games.
This Kickstarter campaign is in Australian Dollars (AUD). This means that our prices are lower in other currencies. At the time of launch, AUD $30 is around USD $23 / EUR €21 / GBP £16.
Whenever we get a new RPG, the first thing we look for is the coins:
"Dwarven gold pieces are square with grooved edges. They get their name from the fact that they stack perfectly, though obviously not with anyone else’s gold coins. To start a fight with a dwarf in a tavern, knock over the tower one of them has stacked beside their ale." - 13th Age
What a great idea! We recruited our Australian artist friend Drew Morrow and got to work.
We have made our Dwarven Tower Coins in three sizes:
- General coin (Large - 28mm)
- Captain coin (Medium - 24mm)
- Soldier coin (Small - 20mm)
The coins can be stacked on coins of the same size in a tower, and they can also be stacked on coins of the next size up (see our 3-coin ziggurat in the main photo at the top of the page to see how they overlap).
These coins are from the 13th Age world, but they are also fun to use for any other tabletop RPG, board game or card game. The stackability is irresistible.
We have not specified a denomination for each coin. In the spirit of 13th Age, we've left it to you to decide what is best for your game. That might be 1 / 5 / 20, or 1 / 10 / 100, or something else.
If you want a whole treasury, we are offering a Dwarven Coin Set. This 50-coin set will contain 25 small coins, 15 medium coins and 10 large coins.
"At Gen Con last year, Mark dropped a velvet bag stuffed with Dwarven Towers on the table in front of me. They landed with a satisfying clank. While we talked, I was irresistibly drawn to holding them, stacking them and weighing them up in my hand. Pixels don’t do justice to their weight, solidity and sheer tactile pleasure of them. I can’t wait to get a full set to use in my 13th Age game." ― Simon Rogers
Icons are one of the best parts of 13th Age. We thought it would help players to remember to use their icon relationships each game if they had metal tokens in front of them during play.
We were inspired by Lee Moyer's painting of all of the icon symbols, so we had Drew redesign them exactly as they appear in the book.
We will be offering the icon tokens in a complete set of 13, as you can see in the photo below:
"Jonathan and I hoped we'd have something cool to use for icon advantages someday and our hopes came true. These icon tiles are beautiful, they match our art perfectly, and when you lay them down they make a solid THUNK. So good!" ― Rob Heinsoo
Each token has transparent green enamel on one side, and red on the other. Keep the green side up if you roll a 6 for your icon relationship roll, and the red side up if you roll a 5.
The tokens really work! Since we started using the prototype tokens in our house campaign, the players have been coming up with new and cool suggestions for their icon relationships, rather than waiting for the GM to do so. It makes a great RPG even better.
Escalation +0 (FUNDED): Icon d12 Add On
UNLOCKED: Roll initiative! We have started production so that we can fulfil on time.
The d12 icon die is now unlocked as a $6 Add On for any pledge level from 10 COINS and up, with thanks to Fire Opal Media and Q-Workshop. This black d12 with white ink shows 12 icons. (The mysterious Prince of Shadows is not depicted, but might show up if the icon rolled is a duplicate of one already in play.)
Escalation +1 (AUD $25,000): Free PDF
UNLOCKED: Pelgrane Press will gift all backers who qualify for stretch goals with a free PDF of the Children of the Icons issue of 13th Age Monthly, worth AUD $4. Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan gives some great ideas for player characters whose One Unique Thing is an icon as a parent, plus a couple of nifty ideas for NPCs. Fear the Bone Princess!
Escalation +2 (AUD $30,000): Velvet bags
UNLOCKED: Each Dwarven Coin Set will come in a free brown velvet bag with the 13th Age logo. The bags measure 13cm x 19cm, and have a strong cord tie. We will also include a free bag for every 2 sets of Icon Tokens you buy, and the bag is available as a $6 Add On.

Metal coins bring games to life! We make our coins to the finest possible prop quality, with beautiful detail and polish. The coin in your hand is the same as the coin in the game world.
Our coins are die cast from a zinc alloy. They are plated and polished to give them an antique feel. They are hard wearing, and feel great to play with.
Our Roleplaying with Coins PDF gives you ideas for using coins in roleplaying games. You can use them as money in the campaign, as story props, as tokens, as scenery, and more. Our Board Games with Coins PDF lists how many coins you need for popular board games.
Thanks for checking out our campaign! It would be a lonely quest without you.
We also thank Rob, Jonathan & Jay at Fire Opal Media, and Simon & Cat at Pelgrane Press. They have all been incredibly generous with their time and advice. Special credit goes to Lee Moyer for the icon art, and to our friend Drew Morrow for designing the metal versions and the coins.
We are especially indebted to James Semple for letting us use his 13th Age Main Theme music in our video. You can buy the full 13th Age Soundtrack from Pelgrane Press, it's great!

Risks and challenges
We have been making coins since 2007. We have already made the molds for this campaign, and since making the video we have completed our final approved samples. We will air freight the production to our fulfilment partners. We anticipate no delays.
This is our third Kickstarter. We have backed nearly 300 projects, and we know what's important: communication, preparation, honesty, and regular updates. We have lots of experience working on other Kickstarters for APE Games, Chaosium, Cheapass Games, Megacon Games, Modiphius and more, and have delivered all of those projects on time.
But, we ran late on our second Kickstarter. We've been over our whole production pipeline since then, and we intend to start manufacture as soon as the project funds. This project is smaller in scope, so we think we can deliver it fast to you, and have it out for GenCon,
Should our schedule change, you'll be the first to know: what's happened, how long it will take to fix, what we're doing about it, and what we will give you as an apology.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
