Re: New Coin Denomination from House Dubh

What is the estimated cost of 1000 coins? Last year the die cost $195.00 and 1000 would have been $0.74 per coin. Here is the break down: 1.125" Anodized GOLD aluminum. 1,000 $0.75 each. 2,500 $0.38 each. 5,000 $0.295 each. JOhn Edited - Prices reflect a quote received April 1, 2013.

Re: New Coin Denomination from House Dubh

Oh is green already used? Ah gotcha, you mean if we had Elidorian Stags worth 25gold or something. Damn white would have been cool. Green is available. Just pointing out that for simplicity each color should be a separate denomination... With that said... I have been speaking with Lanham (Warlord C...

The big shots of Ched Nasad were talking this weekend of doing the same thing, and we were debating the color... I was told that there was a red coin called a merc mark.

Oh. If anyone wants to go in on the purchase let me know. Since all coins are being donated to the club you can write off the value you donate on your taxes next year.

New Coin Denomination from House Dubh

The rules on new coins is odd, for a country (group) to introduce a new coin we only need to get the Senate to ok it. So I am going to ask the Senate to approve a coin to be created by House Dubh with a value of 5 gold. We expect it to be the color WHITE (not silver), but still waiting for the compa...

Re: Darkon Coin

Sorry, the buy back idea won't work... Cause in a yr the gold would go back out and be hoarded again. Then daron would have to make another run of coins and we are out 1/4 of money cost plus the cost of a run. And Pats idea, I think is along the same lines. We do a run of 100gp pieces(1000) costs 7...

Re: A 3 tiered coin economy

We should only ever use coins minted by the club (or a group within the club per the rules).

Make paper money and I can promise you that no one would ever need to see a marshal for currency again.

That is a good idea.

We still need a print run of coins with Cailen's die so we will be getting coins this year. Just no idea how many or how long it will last.

Re: A 3 tiered coin economy

while this will get money back into the bag, it won't solve the problem. Making larger denomination coins results in inflation. We really need to focus on a low value monetary system. We still need silver because we need to be able to make change for potions, poisons and scroll making. Gold is prett...

What is wrong with allowing people to win any award more than once?? It does ZERO harm.

As a reminder. Any of your countries with people with real jobs. You can make your own coinage. Just work with the EB. The rules explain the process. Since we started using the DARKON logo obverse we have had 5 reverses. A blank, Tarims sigil, Keldar arms, Slindar's symbol and the Greater Mordomian ...

Isn't that what a Province Piece is for?? Equates to 50 Gold / 500 Silver. 200 of those is better than 1000 gold coins. of course it should not become the coin of trade just the coin of hoarding. :lol:

Re: Darkon Coin

For what it is worth. House Dubh is an example of people who do not utilize the country economy. If it ain't in coin or goods we don't need it. However, we also don't carry half our coin each event. We have thousands of gold to our name but only have a small fraction any given moment. The idea we wo...

Re: Darkon Coin

Thom,

NOTHING will prevent hoarding. Ever. 20 years of this debate has resulted in nothing.

What makes people bring coins to events? Gambling. Gambling. Gambling.

I do support separating character economy from country economy.

Re: Darkon Coin

Way way too complicated and that rule needs to be removed.

Coinage is a consumable. Order 2500 coins annually using the die of the current King and be done with it.

Re: Darkon Coin

Coin should be an annual expense. Order 2500 coins a year as an expected expense and move on.

Seriously, coin is one of the most unique aspects of the club. Don't stop using it.
