About this project
The intricate detail of Kerry Bodenbender's art is brought to life by our time honored tradition of coin making. Her illustrations are handcrafted then sculpted by some of the world’s finest engravers, to bring you beautiful three dimensional struck medallions. Osborne Coinage has a 178 year history of striking coins & medallions with incredibly fine detail out of materials that will endure the test of time.
Our Elemental based set is made up of 60 hand crafted coins designed to enhance your game play & create a sense of reality in your favorite fantasy realm. Each unique denomination will feature artwork representing one of 6+ elements.
1st Stretch Goal UNLOCKED - See Update #12 for details!!
In September we launched our first KS to fund production. Even though we missed the mark with our first campaign – we weren’t discouraged, instead we were determined to forge ahead & encouraged by all the support & positive feedback we received from the community.
It was clear we simply couldn’t let the project die. So we took a long hard look at our first campaign & made a few changes.
First we decided to take on the risk of investing in the artwork & tooling upfront, which made it possible to lower the funding goal by half. We know how important it is for you to see the completed set before you pledge.
We’ve also created an add on menu & a few stretch goals to unlock. The only change to the actual set is that the cards are now listed as a stretch goal, once unlocked they will be included at all reward tiers $10 & up.
All of our coins are proudly made in the USA in our Cincinnati Ohio facility - Below are more details on these substantial coins.
The backs will have a consistent design, featuring Dethek Runes, the denomination & one of 6 elements; Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Magic & Time.

** See images of the finished Air Element, Harpy coin & artwork progress
As of our launch all but 1 coin is complete. The Harpy illustration for the air element/10 denomination coin is shown below. We’ll post continuous updates on the progress of this coin, each step of the way so you can watch the process unfold. Our Instagram feed shows the progression of the project from our initial concept sketches earlier this year, through first proofs. Follow us there to get up daily photographic updates!!
Here you can see the transformation from a brass blank to a finished antiqued coin.
The process from initial sketch to finished coin, requires a lot of work & a great deal of precision to meet our high standards. We have a great team from our Designers & Engravers to our Coining Experts & it takes all of us to bring you quality, die struck, realistic currency. We hope there is enough enthusiasm for Kerry's amazing art & this awesome concept to bring it to life.

Risks and challenges
There are always challenges but we are confident & passionate about creating coins & have been doing so since 1835!
Since our last campaign we've completed all artwork & tooling for the coins & only need you to create the rest.
As a private mint the challenges & risks associated with producing coins & medallions are minimal for us (& you).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
