I have 5 small "coins" the are metal, 6 sided and have "artis nostrae conditor" on one side and robed figure on the back side.

Anyone have a clue as to the game they are from?

Thanks,
Gantrell

This is probably a stupid question, but are you sure these aren't actual coins?

I don't think I own a single game that came with metal coins, so assuming these are game pieces, they're probably from some sort of collector's edition or other super-fancy kind of game. Does that help narrow down your collection?

The phrase "Artis Nostra Conditor" appears to have been used on some real coins from Great Britain, so perhaps a game centered on the British Isles?

The 1791 Leeds halfpennies look similar to what you described, although not six sided (they are also not game components).

Well, that robed figure is definitely based on the real coins that Gabor linked an image of. So, assuming these are in fact game tokens, I'd look for something focused on Great Britain (or specifically Leeds) in the late 1700s.

Btw, the other image is also based on a real Halfpenny, the 1792 Norwich one.
