So, Belfort is an awesome game - the expansion expansion elevates it to one of the best games in my collection, it really adds so much fun.
Review can be seen here : http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1097898/the-city-of-belfort-...

While playing over this Christmas holiday I realised and appreciated just how fantastic all the components are.
The wood, stone and metal are fantastic.
The coins are...well, good, good for cardboard - they do feature the 5 districts shape printed on them.. But pale in comparison to the other components.

How many Belfort owners would like deluxe shiny metal Belfort gold coins?,
Same as the cardboard but in metal?.

Maybe if people post here, we could initiate TMG into running a kickstarter for this purpose?

I'm in two minds about this. I've just managed to fit all the components in the original box, expansion expansion included and without having to alter the insert.

Shiny bling coins would be cool, but I'd fear not being able to fit them in and not mar the other cardboard chits and wooden pieces!

Chuck, I have my frame in base box also.
I have the original card insert with 4 pieces of frame tucked in each end and the other pieces in the box. Fits snug.
Metal coins would fit where the card ones were.....in the cloth bag embroidered with the gold Belfort D

I'd love to get metal coins as well! I've considered using the Dominion coins for this but having something that fits the Belfort art style would be much more preferable.

I bought generic coins for my games - Realm Coins. There are others around and they look great in many other games too.

I use them in nearly every fantasy game that uses coins or similar instruments of payment! meeple

It's only the version for the common gamer. A real upperclass gamer would use real gold coins ...

Is anyone considering any of these for this game? They look like they will be very high quality with many detailed design options.
