About this project
We are Campaign Coins from Australia. We make beautiful metal coins for tabletop games.
We'd like to invite you to join our new adventure: we would like to make new Epic Treasure Coins, as well as a line of new Starter Sets.
This Kickstarter campaign is in Australian Dollars (AUD). This means that our prices are much lower in other currencies. At the time of launch, AUD $40 is around USD $32 / £21 / €29.
We are adding new 500-coins, 5,000-coins and 10,000-coins to our range, in Antique Copper, Antique Silver, Antique Gold and Platinum.
These are huge coins! The 500-coins are 28mm diameter, the 5000-coins are 32.5mm, and the 10,000-coins are a whopping 35mm diameter. Here they with a United States Quarter.
The Warrior 500-coins each depict a powerful warrior from one of the four great cultures of classic fantasy: an orc shaman, an elven archer, a dwarven warrior and a human knight.
The Dragon 5,000-coins each feature a great dragon: a terrible wyrm, an elfin dragon, a huge dragon on his hoard, and a mighty old dragon.
The City 10,000-coins each show a major city. There is an orcish mountain, a graceful elven tree, a mighty dwarven fortress and a massive human castle.
All of our Classic Fantasy coins are designed by Australian artist Lee Smith. He has also done art for AEG, Fantasy Flight Games, Monte Cook Games, Wizards of the Coast & more
We have designed new Starter Sets to help you build up your treasury.
When you make a Starter Set Pledge, you can choose any of the following sets for each set in your pledge. You can mix and match as you choose.
You only need one set to get started! You can run a great campaign using our Dungeon Set, and then expand your collection later. Download our free PDF on How to Use Coins in RPGs.
The Dungeon set gives you standard treasure for fantasy roleplaying games. This set has enough for the adventurers to raid the dungeon and head back to town to buy magic items.
The Castle set is for higher-level campaigns where platinum is the standard.
The Tavern set introduces everyday money into your campaign. This is a collection of low denomination coins for when the adventurers order a meal and a room for the night.
The Market set gives you mid-range coins for when the adventurers shop for gear.
Finally, the Fantasy Board Game set is designed to add real metal coins to any fantasy or medieval-themed board or card game. This set contains 1s, 5s and 20s in different antique finishes and different shapes, so that they are very easy to tell apart during play.
Tabletop games are more immersive when you play with real metal coins. The weight of the metal, the clink of the coins, the way that light reflects off them... it brings the story to life.
We make our coins to the finest possible prop quality, with beautiful detailing and polishing. 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 feel great to play with, and they are hard wearing - we are still playing with the coins from our first release in 2007.
Our coins are easy to use. They are different sizes and shapes, and have clear denominations.
We have written two free PDFs to help you use your coins:
Roleplaying with Coins (PDF) gives you ideas for using coins in roleplaying games. You can use them to represent money in the campaign, or use them as game tokens and story props.
Board Gaming With Coins (PDF) lists the amount of coins required for popular board games. This will help you build a collection that's right for you.

Pledge levels which qualify for stretch goals will receive one or more limited edition Avariss-500 coins.
Drama & Divination PDF (Unlocked): Game designer Ryan Macklin (credited in Mythender, Fate Core, BackStory Cards, Pathfinder Mythic Adventures, and more) wrote a brilliant article last year on using our coins as a way to generate story ideas for roleplaying games (check out Eternal Frost and Unrelenting Peril on his website).
We will ask Ryan to expand on his ideas to make them useful for any RPG setting, and to cover our entire Classic Fantasy range including all of the coins from this Kickstarter campaign. We've been talking with him about this for some time now, and he's cooking up some other neat ways of using Campaign Coins as adventure and situation generation material.
Drama & Divination: Using Campaign Coins to generate story ideas will be a 12-page PDF and made available to all backers. Afterwards it will be available as a free PDF on our website.
Stretch Goal #7 (Unlocked): Limited edition Dhum-500 gold coin

Risks and challenges
We have been making coins since 2007. We've done this before! We have already made the molds. We will air freight the production to our fulfilment partners. We anticipate no delays.
This is our second Kickstarter, and we got great feedback on our first one, for Fate Tokens. We have backed nearly 200 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.
We've got this! But, should our schedule change, you'll be the first to know: what's happened, how long it will take to fix, and what we're doing about it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
