That is awesome Phil. Thanks for posting that.

Now I am crossing my fingers that maybe a photo of the screen used bills will be next. ;)

FANTASTIC---Thanks for posting those, nice to finally see what was only fuzzy little blobs. :thumbsup


Looks like they even used some of the "chromey" ones I thought looked so bad, and I've even sold off a few (as inaccurate) that now turn out to be the correct models. :lol

Well, I should have looked here sooner. Thanks for the clear pics, Phillipe.

That's another 3 I've confirmed I can get. Wow. :$

Now, who's going to be the first person to take this photo and identify exactly what each coin is, so those of us with no numismatic skills can just waltz on over to eBay and pick up a set? :)

I know a few of them.
The funny thing (not funny, "haha") with these coins is that the people that know what they are, want lots of money.
You need to find the auctions where the people don't know what the coins are.

I feel thanks to Phil are due, and Toothtech for his thread as well. :) Between the two I was well-armed when I set out to find some Firefly coins of my own. Having done that with a good degree of success (IMHO) I'd like to continue in the theme of helping everyone recognize these when they see them.

Here's what I have, Showing both sides of each coin. Didn't want to post pics, just URL's as there are quite a few and they are large (so you get all the detail). I don't have the numismatic skills Iron Fist speaks of. I can't name them to say "go get this...", but I sure can seem to find them. :p

I have a theory that these are showing up as mulptiples in Phil's pictures, seeing the slight differences in letters and province names. Can anyone verify correct provinces?

Here are two I found with accurate backs, but the fronts don't match up. Maybe I only need one side for a display, anyways. :angel

And a few interesting if not accurate coins...like wrestling a tiger. :confused

That's about all I've got so far. Still missing a few coins, but I'm keeping my eyes open. I'll have to dirty up some of my tallcards soon, too. Still some of those available ;) .

Hope this helps everyone spot a few more. I also hope it doesn't spike the cost of accurate ones either. :unsure

Good luck out there, hunters.

Holy poo.

I was able to ID another coin from one of your pics and boy are these coins costly.

bump, to bring this back from the dead

Has anyone made a visual reference of the accurate coins? I am still looking for a few coins and clearer photos of them would be helpful to say the least.

The province coins have been proving hard, as is Row 2 #5, and Row 3 #3.

Okay, here's what I was able to pin down after some research online:

This is not definitive; mostly educated guesses. Most are probably knock-offs, anyway.

Good luck.

Here are some more Firefly coins and tallcards another client allowed me to post. Interestingly, the coins and cards are from firefly, while the plate and baskets are from Serenity:

Hello, all...been doing a search on eBay and I've found several of the Chinese coins. I'm sure you all have already thought of this, but I wanted to let you know they are there.

Thank you, Philippes, for posting this, and thanks to everyone else for adding on.

Just my opinion, but when I start to aquire Chinese coins for my Firefly/Serenity display, I'm going to make sure there aren't any easily identifiable dates, people or provinces because these are supposed to be coins from Sihnon and Londinium's Alliance 500 years in the future.

The coins worked on screen because you can't really examine them, but the ones in my shadowbox display will need to pass closer scrutiny.
So, I'm looking for coins based on dragons and Chinese writing (which is Greek to me HAHA.) for my display.
