In order to keep my Scythe coins organized, I purchased some plastic coin-collector tubes. They all fit quite neatly now.*

I'm planning on pre-ordering the expansion. It'd be nice if the new coins were of similar size to the $20 coins.

What is the diameter of the new $50 coin?

----
*For reference, USA coin sizing equivalents:

-$20 coins -> Half-Dollar
-$10 coins -> Gold Dollar
-$5 coins -> Quarter
-$3 coins -> Quarter (a bit loosely)
-$1 coins -> Nickel

I think Jamey said they've decided to make just one version of the expansion so they're not making the $50 coins.

EDIT: There's a chance they'll still get made if the interest is high enough. But it'll be sold through the BGG store rather than as a preoder bonus. So I suppose the question is still valid

Great Idea, but one question: WHERE?

I purchased the tubes from Air-Tites.com.

He never mentioned metal coins, although I would not go through the trouble of getting containers for the cardboard ones myself.

The cardboard $50 coins in the expansion are bigger than the $20 coins.

You're going to need a Pringles can to store the 50$ coins.
