I like the coins in this game. I would like to get actual metal versions as an upgrade. Any suggestions if this is even possible? Third party vendor maybe?

Thanks all.

Look on eBay for Feng Shui coins - the lots of 50 or 100 suit quite well.

Excellent, thanks. But I think these will actually work better:

The just ended kickstarter for best damn metal gaming coins ever! and those look very promising.

They are clearly planning on selling them as once produced. There are several different designs for each denomination including Greek, Roman, and two different sets of mythic creatures as well as one basic set with roman numerals on it for static denominations.

I currently use some of those dubloon replicas that can be found from several companies with a little googling and I like the feel of them, but I do wish I had different denominations at different sizes and colors.

Yes, the realm coins and pirate coins have a nice "heft" to them, but the ones I mention are much less expensive and are more in the style of Waterdeep currency.

Using these coins for other games, but basically they are very light, very cheap and look stylish for a worldy game.

This is a great recommendation, thanks for the tip.

I found these ones on ebay, that are the exact same size as the 1 denomination coins in LoW (19 mm):

Problem is that those feng shui coins are round, instead of square like in LoW.

There are hexagon feng shui coins out there like these, but they are slightly too big when compared to the 1 denomination LoW coins:

Any recommendations for replacement of the 38mm 5 denomination big moon coins? I was looking at the Feng Shui "Shovel" coins, but all the ones I've seen on ebay are made out of "jade". The metal ones I found are too small!

*EDIT* I did find these 30mm "Chinese" pendants that might work as a moon coin replacement:
