Fantasy Coins

Awhile back I missed out on a KS for a selection of 'Fantasy' coins from a company called 'Rare Elements' to use for props for gaming, theatre, displays, etc.  Saw them at GenCon (I got one of their pins) but the booth was gone on Sunday when I went back for my final purchase spree.

Instead I ended up ordering a set each of their 'Elemental' and 'Alignment' coins, 60 coins each.

While shipping took a bit longer than hoped, it's a small company and it's con season so that can be forgiven.  The coins are solid and the casting clean. The artwork on them is beautiful. I think is one of the better sets I've seen out there of which there were three or four at GenCon.

Methinks they will make great game visuals this weekend when I break out the dice again w/ the spawnlings.

What are they made from?

THey say "the same materials and process as US currency," so I think it's mostly aluminum. The larger ones are considerably heavier though so I'm not 100% sure.

They're actually minted from solid metal, Nickel Silver, Brass & Copper. Die struck in the same process as US currency. If you have any questions, we'd love to answer them. Just let us know.
