Deryni Coins
« on: March 02, 2018, 03:27:28 pm »
This isn't a new project at all. In fact this is one that came and went back in 2001-2002. Within the chats of those days and yes they have been going on for that long. The idea was kicked around and approved. The die's struck and the coins minted.

There were 6 coins in the entire set.

Follow the link to see them.

Those are incredible!  Is there any chance of more being made?

I think they were made outside of the United States. I'll have to make some inquiries.

Those coins and (wasn't it keychains as well) were awesome; iirc they were made in Turkey.  If you do find the answers as to where they come from and are potentially getting more of them, I need a new Kelson Keychain.  I lost my first one. Thanks.

I think keychains were done as well. Never had a set of those though. But yes I think you are right on Turkey as the point of origin for the molds and minting.

I'm checking into the possibility of having more coins available. Not sure about the key chains. There maybe some coins still left from the initial order.

I know someone through the SCA who makes coins (mostly historical reproductions).  Would there be enough interest that people would want me to ask him if he'd make new Deryni coins?  If so, how much would people be willing to pay for the coins (so I can let the coin-maker know)?  Shipping would probably be an additional cost; the person who makes coins is here in Florida, but I think he's somewhere around the middle of the state; IIRC, he's south of Orlando but not by far.

I would be interested but would need to know shipping and also any taxes. I  ordered a lovely skirt from the US but they didn't mention that that would be nearly 25% additional to pay in customs and taxes when it was too late to back out.

Whereas the hours of pleasure I get from Rhemuth Castle are entirely free from the machinations of either the IRS or HMRC (her Majesty’s revenue and customs).

Shipping would depend largely on the finished weight of the coins; I'm not sure how much tax would apply (Florida state sales tax is 7% of the price; multiply the price of the item by 1.07 to get an idea of the final cost with tax), but I can certainly ask about both (and if the coin-maker isn't able/willing to ship overseas, I might be able to have him ship the coins to me and then I'd ship them on to you [or to whomever else overseas], but I might need help covering the shipping cost, depending on how much the shipping is).

Cannot escape the Taxman unfortunately. But at this time I wouldn't have any idea how much it would be as the Deryni Coins were minted in Turkey. They wouldn't be able to be shipped from Turkey directly to the end customer due to minimum order sizes. But the company in Turkey that did the coins back in 2001 is still in business so they should still have the molds available incase we need to have more made. As soon as I have more info I'll post it to this thread though.

I would be happy to pay the tax and shipping whether to the coin-maker or a third party. I was just a bit put out that that there would be taxes to pay hadn't been made clear from a company that was happy to quote prices in £ as well as $.
