The Sumi ‘Blood and Ink’ Coin series was launched last year to celebrate the success of Sumi Playing Cards. We were then striving to break new grounds by representing Wabori, the traditional Japanese tattoo art form, in coin design through highly intricate and iconic elements of ukiyo-e, fantastical oriental mythological creatures, and Heroes of the Marsh that were relatively unseen in EDC coin projects.
We are back this time with new coin designs with yet another success with Sumi Playing Cards: Kitsune. The Nine-Tailed Fox coin features the fox spirits in traditional Japanese folklore. We had earlier coin designs that were meant to be released as part of stretch goals in the first ‘Blood and Ink’ Coin series. We have since enhanced the design, explored new coin dimensions and decided on exciting new coin finishes. The Nine-Tailed Fox coin strives to continue to break new grounds by weaving fantastical elements with modern numismatic aesthetics.
Coin 1 - The Fox Head
Coin 2 - Fox Tails
For Nine-tailed Fox coin, we are working with Coins for Anything, a reputable and well-known mint for EDC coin projects.
The coins will die struck out of of a base brass material and are 2” (approx. 50mm) in diameter. The coins will come in 4 finishes – Antique Silver, Antique Gold, Antique Copper and Black Nickel – and will feature smooth edges. All coins will be manufactured in USA.

Risks and challenges
This is our second coin campaign and we have learnt much from the first coin campaign. We have also ran several successful campaigns in Kickstarter. Card Experiment operations have also recently gotten an upgrade with new spacious workshop that allows for more effective coordination and fulfilment. Working with Coins for Anything provide the highest assurance of great quality coins. There should be minimal risks and challenges once the campaign is funded. So please support this campaign!
Timely shipping is a perennial issue. For those of you who have supported us in Sumi Playing Cards: Kitsune, we are planning to finish the coins in time to combine the shipping of the decks with the coins. We will continue to be conservative in our delivery estimate but is optimistic about meeting fulfilment deadlines, of course, without any unforeseen circumstances.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
