1001 Curious Coins

The adventurers have spent days exploring the rugged lands on the far side of Deggur Pass, following clues on a half-burned map they found in an earlier treasure. Somewhere there, according to the map, is where the long-ago bandit chieftain Crannok hid the loot from a huge merchant caravan before he fell off a cliff escaping the Duke's soldiers. For over two hundred years, Crannok's lost treasure has been the stuff of tavern tales. So they search..

GM: Those goblins you that ambushed you, to their regret, didn't have much treasure. Some rusty weapons, mostly, and a handful of copper coins, pretty pebbles, and bits of junk.

Garin: I'm starting to think that Crannok was never real.

Kalthros: I'm starting to think that I'm not real. Let's look through this stuff and get moving.

Party Leader: We'll check the pretty rocks for magic while Garin is checks out the coins.

GM: There's nothing special about them. And aside from the coins, everything else is junk.

Garin: What do those coins look like?

GM: They're medium-sized, round copper coins. There's a crown on the front and a dragon on the back. Around the circumference on front is the name Tamatac the Great.

Lyry: The Great? Didn't everyone call him Tamatac the Fat?

Kalthros: Wait … Tamatac? I know that name. (closes his eyes for a moment, thinking) He was king when Crannok hid the treasure. Those goblins had to have found the coins somewhere nearby.

Jarmak: We must be getting close! And hey, can I have one of those coins? They must be lucky!

Welcome to the "1001 Things" collections

This is a list of descriptions of  coins of all types. Here are coins of all sizes, shapes, and descriptions. If you're tired of identical copper, silver, and gold pieces, with nothing to distinguish them but the name, if all your coins are the same, here are 1001 that are most definitely not!
These descriptions list the size and shape of each coin, the type of metal it is made of, and when it was minted. Some of them have other attributes, such as being of interest to collectors, having some minor magic, or even being illegal to possess in some places. Some of them are counterfeit, making them illegal in a different and even more dangerous way. They can be handy for determining the age and origin of a hoard; it cannot, after all, be older than the newest coin. They can be used to give clues to things, such as our adventurers' coins from Tamatac's day, or perhaps dark elven coins in the possession of a spy.
Finding a collector who will pay a high price for some rare coin, or dealing with charges of counterfeiting after inadvertently trying to pass a bogus coin, can be adventures in themselves. The origin of some unfamiliar coin is a perfect hook to hang an adventure on.

No more "Um, it's just a bunch of coins..."; with 1001 Curious Coins to choose from, you'll be ready with unique coins any time you need them.

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
