I'm looking for a set of Chinese coins that look alike, are half-dollarish in size (so 28-31mm) and are brass, but not painted. The usual eBay searches seem to provide single coins but not ones that match..

Any ideas where I might be able to source some?

Thanks for the link - not seen that site before. Are they the same coins as the ones you can get direct from China? I thought they were painted but I could be wrong of course!

Not sure (don't think so) but know this site is reputable for good magic, but these don't look painted, they look to be made to appear of a more aged look to them...

And here's a great deal on a set of them. Smile

And a little review from a Café member on them... Smile

I just purchased a set of the half dollar sized From Tom Ladshaw with a [ and a fli**per. These are very well made, have a great price ... plus I ordered them on Thursday and they showed up in my mailbox on Monday morning! Highly recommended. Oh, yea, ... the coins fit nicely in an expanded half dollar [.

I would recommend these to anyone.

Good journey to you... Smile

I've ordered three. He's also got some thinner Yuan coins too so I've ordered three of them as well! If they suit then I might get a [ to go with them.

Will report back.
