Epic Metal Coins for Tabletop Gaming

$17,238

222

Epic Coins are real metal fantasy currency designed to be used with tabletop board games, role playing games, larping or as props.  The coins have a fantasy themed design but real world detail and heft, so upgrade your cardboard tokens!  There are two unique designs available in sets of 60 pieces (10X cresecent and 50X square coins).

The Coins

Crescent coin design features an antique silver finish.  The obverse of the coin depicts twin Griffons sejant combatant.  The reverse shows a galley sailing to a harbor with a towered castle.  The text on the coin is "five" in Elven and Dwarvish scripts.

Square coin design has an antique brass finish.  Obverse and reverse show various fantastic design motifs with crescent and star.  The text on the coin is "one" in Elven and Dwarvish scripts.

Dimensions

Diameter:

  • Crescent: 38 mm
  • Square: 19 mm

Width/Thickness:

  • Crescent: 3.2 mm (approximate)
  • Square: 2.4 mm (approximate)

The coins feature high relief 3D detailing and a hand buffed finish.  Both coins have a holed center and raised edge lip to make stacking easier.  The coins are real metal, minted from zinc and nickle.


Shipping

The coins will be shipped to backers via USPS Priority Mail small flat rate box.  

International backers, please note that significant savings on shipping can be had when backing multiple sets.  We encourage you to combine shipping with friends or gaming club members on multiple sets of coins!

All photos are of the actual production quality coins you will receive!  No renders, no prototypes, no mock-ups.  These designs are ready to go into full production at the mint immediately after the Kickstarter funding has processed!

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter project and the first with physical rewards that will require global shipping. Our first project was actually the production of the fantasy fonts used on these coins. The fonts were delivered via email to backers immediately after the project funding was processed.

For this project we have decided to keep the pledge levels very simple, no Backerkit, no complex shipping schemes, no stretch goals that overextend the scope of the project and drag out fulfillment for months.

The funding level of $3200 was carefully chosen to fully cover manufacturing, Kickstarter fees and taxes, shipping costs, labor, materials and a cushion for possible postal losses; for the minimum number of coins needed to break even.

The coin fulfillment date of June was determined by adding some padding to deal with possible production delays and to account for the man hours required to ship a project of this scope. We think it is better to ere on the side of caution than to lure additional backers with an unrealistic fulfillment date.

The coins will be shipped from the mint to our storage space by airmail with tracking, so there will be no waiting for months while a container may or may not be at sea. Once we have the production run of coins they will begin shipping immediately via USPS priority mail to backers in the order that pledges were received.

Updates will be posted in a timely manner after the coins are successfully funded in order to keep backers in the loop regarding the production and shipping.
