New Coinage

Recommended Posts

It's time for new coins. This time we're buying 500 new exotics from www.fantasycoin.com. I've been haggling with them for a couple days, and I have them down to a reasonable cost for 30mm "gold" coins and setup costs. These are slightly bigger than our current coppers.

But, we need art!

Circular shape, 30mm diameter, 300 DPI. Coins have two sides, but you can submit as many individual images as you'd like. Each honest attempt gets you 5 XP (I am the sole arbiter of an honest attempt). Post submissions in this thread.

Show me what you got, and the Marshals will pick the best two sides. Each winner gets 10 XP plus I'll give you one of the first coins we get.

Entries due at 11:59 PM on January 1st.

Png for easy use & hopefully they are the right format size.
I'm excited to see what the new coins may look like & here are a few quick designs for fun. I'll likely keep tossing in design ideas so feel free to cap the Xp on attempts

These should be recognizably from our world, rather than cool-looking generic art. We've also never put in Evenandran exotics before...

Having a bit more direction helped focus a better design

Why would the elves not use elven script on their own coins?

I attempted to have it in Elven script, Used translators and such; however 12/12 of the text editors  I could find ranging from photoshop to Fotor, could not add elven text. In theory I could find a way to photoshop in a png of the text but then curving it in an  arch around the circle is also incredibly difficult. 

I will continue to seek out a method but can't confirm any success.

 If it was easy I'd have done it myself. :D

Tengwar eldamar script If you turn it where the blossom if facing up it reads " Evenandra Eternal"  
Took me a lot of fiddling and fighting to find a Elven scrip that was thick enough to show up on a coin legibly.

And just for laughs I made a bonus "DICKS" coin. Because everything looks fancy in elvish

No numbers on the coins, please. That's a very modern concept.

Sorry to keep moving goalposts and adding new parameters. I have no idea what we're looking for - or not looking for - until I see it.
