Play your best by playing with the BEST!
We want to take gaming to a new level by kicking up the way fantasy currency is done! We are designing and making a new type of fantasy currency, one that helps submerse you deeper into your game. This new line of fantasy currency is unlike any other and has has the feel of real currency. Why? Because our line of FANTASY currency is actually made from REAL currency!
To give the most authentic look and feel, we will be using older, more worn coins. This is partly to give more character to the coins, but also prior to 1982, pennies were made out of solid copper, rather than just the copper plated pennies that are made now. These coins, along with the older nickels, dimes & quarters will give the gamer a more authentic feel when holding, tossing, & bartering in your desired game.
We have come up with and designed numerous themes & styles for these coins, but decided to start out with a more neutral approach. With the thatched & hammered background and large number denominations, it allows these coins to be used and played with a larger variety of games, from modern to ancient themed, they work perfectly! If this initial design is successful, we will be introducing some of our themed style designs. Once struck, the coins will go through an antique wash that will give the coins a slightly darker look and highlight the design.
This is a project that we have been working on for over a year. We have had to make several changes and tweaks in order to abide to all the laws and regulations when it comes to making a fantasy coin that's using a real currency. We have consulted with multiple legal sources and received information directly from the United States Treasury on how we can create these fantasy coins within the regulations. Since all of the designs are struck over the existing coins, each coin will be slightly larger than the original coin, and collared to the size that the United State government requires so they can no longer be used in coin-operated vending machines.
Made entirely in the USA:
Unlike most fantasy coins that are manufactured overseas (typically in China), we will be using a manufacture here in the United States that will be striking these coins for us. Even the genuine leather bags that will come with the sets are made here in the United States with leather sourced from within the United States.
Great for Gifts!:
If this project is successful, we will be aiming to have these all made and shipped out by end of November so that all the backers will receive them no later then early December. We will work hard to achieve this so that they made be used for Christmas presents for friends and family.

Fantasy Currency made REAL!!!
$15,000 - If we have hit this stretch goal, we will have enough funding to introduce a 50 denomination coin that will be struck on a Kennedy Half Dollar!
$25,000 - With this stretch goal, it will allow us to introduce a large size 100 denomination fantasy coin that we plan on using over the classic style Eisenhower dollar coins (or Ike dollars).
Every backer will receive a free coin from each of these stretch goals that are met!
Risks and challenges
We have be planning this project for around a year now and have worked out all of the foreseen issues. We already have all the designs done for all coins (including the two stretch goal coins). We already have the first set of dies done for the penny coins (number 1) and the manufacture has already done all the testing. The leather bags are being custom made from a manufacture that we have previously worked with and no issues are anticipated.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
