Hi,

Looking for inexpensive evil looking coins - one that the Devil might give someone to grant them magical powers at gambling for example - I was going to do a Shane effect that involves such a prop - got a bunch of coins and I got replica doubloons (with the dreaded "COPY" printed in small on them (ugh)) - but wondering if any of you can recommend an evil looking coin... or fake coin... I've been using the doubloons as I like the gold look...

On the other hand, I could take some old coins and carve them up somehow with pentagrams... any otehr thoughts from my esteemed bizarrist pals???

All the best,

Bruce

You can look up "sand casting" on the internet. Basically, you wet some sand and carve out your design in the negative, then you can pour any molten metal into it and have your positive. That way you can make any coins you like. Actually, I think I may be able to make some for you. PM me if you like.

There are rather inexpensive coins available from the Isle of Man. They have the triskelion on them. These are quite mystical.

We did this also with bars of soap and wood carving tools. Allows you to get a smoother coin and more than one per mold.

I did a google search on pagan pendant and found lots of sources. Here's one to get you started:

You can probably find good examples for coins by looking at wax seals. I've seen some great pagan wax seals that could be worked into a devil coin quite nicely.

If you do ever come across satan's pocket change, let me know. I'd love a coin or two to add to my collection as well.

Carved out of wood perhaps? You can get wood disk blanks in the right size at Michaels.

Just some thoughts.

The classical fairy coins are weird.

Otherwise, you should try to find antique tokens from Cabinet of curiosities, some have devil or imp heads on them. They are not that difficult to find.
You may also try to find antique church coins with skulls.

Does the Vatican still mint coins? That would be one approach.

Wait, you pour moulten metal into soap and it doesn't melt? Or did I misunderstand what you wrote.

What you need for this is called Wood's Alloy. You can also get Cerrobend or Cerrosafe. These are low melting point metals.

Abbotts used to make palming coins with the devil performing magic on them. They may work depending on your character, and if you can even find them. Smile

Make your cast with sandstone or whatever, then lay do some solder, take your handy dandy propane torch and melt the solder into the mold, if you over heat the solder it will "burn" and look really old.

There are two different types that I know of, Lead-free and with Lead.

There is a bloke somewhere in Northern california that does some AMAZING coins from the Lord of the Rings (Elves, hobbit, dwarf, man and MORDOR (!)

I don't have any more info than that handy, but a quick internet search within those parameters should show you the way... the Mordor coins are particularly wicked looking, as one might imagine!

There are also solder as used by plumbers and others with an acid core (flux) and solder as used in electronics that has a non-corrosive resin core. I would use the resin-core solder if you go that route. There used to be a lead molding toy with an electrically heated ladle, but with the concern today about lead poisoning, I'm sure it is no longer available. Low melting-point alloys are available.

Thanks Gaddy!

Here is the link: http://www.thelandofshadow.com/mordorgat......tals.htm

and it leads to Shire.com - where there are a ton of cool coins - especially like the New France one that has Louis XiV and on the other side a shiedl with 3 skulls!!!! The Eye of Sauron coins are also cool...

(They even got Klingon coins!?!?)....

All the best,

Bruce
