I'm not much for item cards, but this looks like a lot of fun to me. Go figure.

Any chance of getting some pictures of the actual coins?

Taldor Contributor

I saw these at GenCon. They looked very nice. My friends had to physically restrain me and drag me away from the booth, because I already have my own D&D coin/token system set up.

I bought 2 boxes of these at GenCon and they are awesome! We also have a small chest (like 3x6 inches or so) that we got from a craft store, and with the coins in there for the players to count, it's way better than saying, "You find 2,438 copper, 438 silver". They are amazingly high quality, and I will probably buy more.

Huh, guess I should do a review of them.

You can see them here, on their website.


Last year, I went on a quest to find a product like this and failed.

I was lucky enough to find a bag (1,200 coins) of 1967 British pennies on eBay - and these serve me as gold pieces. I then got about 100 old-style Mexican pesos which serve as platinum pieces.

For larger quantities, I use paper money - specifically devalued Peruvian Intis from the late 1980's.

My players love them - especially when combined with Paizo's Item Cards.

I don't use copper or platinum much in my campaign. I'd sure like to see them sell the coins a la carte, so you could just buy a bunch of gold coins if that's all you need.


Odd that this headline item from their ad is "Out of stock" and "Discontinued."

This product is a backorder.

This product has been discontinued by the manufacturer.

So why is this product featured in their weekly email ad?!

That's what the product status was earlier today. Our main distributor hasn't updated their database to reflect its current availability, but it is available, so this afternoon I made a special trip into the office to set this product to "backorder" because we can get it from another distributor.

(And I believe our main distributor will probably update their database on Monday, which means it will switch from "backorder" to "usually ships from our warehouse in x days," where x depends on which warehouse it's in stock.)

Oh, and the "discontinued" status is probably wrong as well. We get that data from our main distributor.


very cool, very well made though expinsive. i'd try to find them second hand.


63 bucks! I hope that's a misprint. At an average cost of over 50 cents per coin, why not just use actual money? Or better yet, a bag of plastic "pirate coins" are only $5 for a gross. I'm a DM own loves me some fun props, but not at that price.


That is pricey at $65 per box. I've been collecting electrical slugs from construction sites to use as coins. They're not as nicely detailed as these, in fact they're devoid of detail, but they're also free if you can find them. :)

What's an electrical slug? Google images only sent back a LOT of pics of slugs...which would work nicely should I ever run a giant slug encounter. :P

As for the coins, I agree that's kinda pricey but still cheaper than, from what I understand, having them shipped from Australia to the US. I might pick up a box just to have a set, they are really nice looking.

Yup- I draw the line at playing Franklin Mint prices for play money.

Electrical outlet boxes have punchouts that, once the electrician knocks out the punchout for where the wiring goes through, you end up with a round slug that they typically throw away.


These were on my "must buy" list for GenCon as I really wanted the tactile feel and feedback of coinage in my game so I picked up two boxes to see if I would like them. I do, and the GenCon special coin (5,000 gp dragon) is very nice. I will admit; a lower price would make this item a more desired commodity for game play. The individual wrapping of each coin was a bit excessive, but it may have been the best tradeoff in packaging for shipping without scratching the coins. I will be watching to see how the coins hold up in actual use, as far as scratching/denting goes.

I enjoy the reaction when a stash is uncovered and the counting that ensues. Some of the "live" pocketing of the coins is interesting to observe with actual props to work with. Yes, they do clink and at the most inopportune moments!

The first storage cases I used were not exactly easy to use to get the coins in and out of, but I found a storage case at Home Depot with 16 tip out storage boxes (they all tip out in tandem, making all coins accessible immediately) which is very convenient, but with a slight drawback; I think it will take another 8 or so boxes of Coins to fill it up! {sigh}

Now that they are available from Paizo, I think I know what to put on my Christmas list. Much cheaper than paying shipping from Down Under!

Osirion

The coins are expensive, but I think it's worth it. You really only need one box to enhance your gaming experience. But if you're like me, you'll get more.

The detail on the coins is exquisite. The silver coins are my favorite.

Hey y'all:

We just got a shipment of Campaign Coins from our friends at King of the Castle Games in Australia. The original shipment that we placed with our distributor never made it to us, so I went directly to the source and Andre was kind enough to get us some stock for the holidays. These are in the warehouse and ready to ship, so get your order in now if you are interested!

-Lisa


A good friend of mine picked these up at GenCon. I absolutely love the feel and look of the pieces. The only thing that bugs us about them is that they don't have a "5" denomination. Kind of hard to count out a bunch of 1cps rather than just grab a five to make change and what not.

If they decide to do these over, they should add a 5 denomination for cp, sp, gp, and pp.


Any news on when you are expecting some of these in your warehouse?
Cheers

I have been looking around for some stock at our various distributors. I hope to see some good news when I get in to work on Monday.

Nope, nothing yet. Tell you what, I will try to remember to do some extra checking tomorrow. I will also send an email to Andre at Campaign Coins in Australia to see if there is something that we can do. Sorry for the delay.

Wow, looking at their website, these are some real quality pieces. Even at that price, I might have to pick some up.

Now they just need to make bags of fake gems with values printed on them.


I was able to get a whole bag full of fake 'Spanish Dubloons' from a craft store for a couple of bucks, and I like to use them as props. I don't know if I'd want to do it all the time though, and I'm not sure if I'd want my 'toys' out of my sight (do players get to take them home?)

Still... a very well-made and good looking product.

When will these become available again?

Check their website.

They're going to be at GenCon this June, and their store seems to be functional, including the ability to purchase individual coins in sets of 10.

What No Electrum pieces !!!!

Any info yet Lisa?

They are showing 10 packs of each coin on their site. Those would be a nice way to see the coins before buying to big box.

If you add these to your site, be sure to tell us.

Note: You guys really need a better way to promote your "New Items in the store".

Paizo Employee CEO

Andre (the owner of King of the Castle Games) and I have been trying to get in contact with each other about this. Unfortunately, since he is down under and I am up here in the Pacific Northwest, there is quite a time difference. Still, we are trying to work out a time to talk about things and how we can get his products onto paizo.com. Hopefully, I will have some good news soon.

I guess I can add it to my growing shopping cart stuff and wait for our govt's cash giveaway for no reason and spend their money on stuff I want.

Just wanted to let everyone know that we got 16 copies of this product in yesterday. 7 of them were already spoken for, but that means we have around 9 copies for those who have been waiting for Campaign Coins to come back in stock. We hope to have a more consistent supply in the future, but for now, this should tide you guys over! ;)

Just returned from Origins. They had plenty in stock. They may be at GenCon (I did not ask). They have expanded the line. There are now 2, 5, 20 and 50 pieces for each set.

My girlfriend has been trying to figure out what to get me for my birthday, and I mentioned these to her. Last night I apparently ordered them. I'm guessing she didn't notice that I was still logged into the paizo site from her computer, so she ordered them through my account.

Which sucks, because my birthday is MONTHS from now. And I have to pretend I don't know she ordered them. POOP!

Yep, and the site remembers it, and she's lucky I love her, or I'd max it out on Warmachine miniatures. :)

Though I must admit, hardcore gamer that I am, "maintain steady relationship" vs "complete Cryx army" was a toss-up. Could've went either way.


Any word on whether or not they'll be selling individual coins (in sets of 10, I understand) through Paizo? I'd love to flesh out my set with some more singles. The two boxes I bought just aren't enough to roll around in. ;)


Those are pretty cool, a tad pricey though. Spray painted poker chips would work well enough if you didnt mind putting the work into props.

Our group currently uses Pirate Party Treasure coins for "Action (Hero/Fate) Points" which are easy enough to find at the Dollar Store or Walmart.

When I was looking for the above party coins I found these, which I thought were kinda nice...

Holy crow, these are some nice looking coins! Got my package yesterday and was really impressed by the quality.

The tremendous amount of packaging, however, makes the environment cry out for help.


I know roleplaying isn't about realism, and the coins are very pretty, but for some reason it bugs me that they come in denominations of the same metal. Doodz, there is no such thing as a "20gp" coin. Money wasn't backed by government guarantees, it was backed by the intrinsic value of the metal. To have a value of 20gp, the coin would have to contain 20 times as much gold as a gp, and have 20 times the volume, which would make it absurdly large. So 20gp was represented by, yes, 20 pieces of gold.

(Yes, you might be able to make, say, a normal-sized 20cp coin out of silver, if silver were 20 times as valuable as copper. But in that case it would just be a silver piece. And the values of metals fluctuate depending on supply, so if nearby miners struck a vein of silver, the value of your 20cp coin might go down to 15cp. Way too confusing.)

Face it, using "20gp coins" is about as silly as claiming your fighter can wear two sets of plate armor on top of each other...

But yeah, the coins are pretty, so don't make fun of me if I end up buying some anyway. :-)

IMHO, those 10/100/1000 denominations are necessary.

Here's how I use them: I combine them with item cards in small pouches, and give them to my players when they search a room or monster. With denominations, I can easily produce treasures that have very big amounts of some coins, without having to buy a truckload of coins of each metal. With the 120 coins provided in this product and a couple item cards packs, I can prepare a whole dungeon's treasures. And since I let my players count the money, they actualy count for a minute or two, not for an hour, if there are 1387 gp and 3253 cp in the box they open...


I see on their website that they have the coins in this set available in 10 packs, will these be added here anytime soon?


I don't suppose there is any idea when these will be stocked in your warehouse again is there?

Thanks for the quick reply. I think these might make a good Christmas gift for myself and my gaming group :-)
