Whether you're a pirate, privateer, or land-bound soldier...

These replicas of Spanish reales and doubloons will make great accessories to use with the period board, dice and card games that we research and sell.

They also make excellent props to use in front of the public at historic themed events.

We need your help to place an initial bulk order of the coins so that we will be able to sell them at both retail and wholesale prices. The company we were originally buying them from suddenly went out of business, leaving us without a supplier. However, they were kind enough to refer us to the manufacturer they had used. 

The designs for these "gold" and "silver" coins are the same because Spanish mints sometimes used the same molds to make different denomination coins in gold and silver. The sets will include equal numbers of the "gold" and "silver" coins and a plain cotten drawstring pouch to keep them in. They are about the size of a modern quarter and are made out of zinc just like a modern American penny, so they have an authentic sounding metallic "clink".

If you can't contribute but like the idea, please share the link with people who would be interested!
