    So, i decided to make a bunch of 3D Coins from all sorts of Movies, Shows, Games and so on.
    I will make at least one Coin per Day until Saturday (have visitors at the weekend).
    I will make every Coin accessible via shapeways (Coin with the cheapest material is around 4$).
    So everyone can get one cheap, make molds of it and replicate them.
    Suggestions are welcome. ^^
    I hope you Guys enjoy the Idea.

    (because of some limitations on shapeways every Coin will at least 3mm thick, so some of them will not have the original dimensions)

    Here are the first 4.

    Gold Coin from John Wick:

    Great idea!

    I've always wanted the GOONIES DOUBLOON as well as some "Pirate" gold coins we see in the movie, but never had the strength to do them myself.
    I found some on e-bay, but most are recasts or too expensive or totally inacurate...

    Anyway, great job so far!

    I am working on the Gondorian Coin from Shadows of Mordor at the Moment.
    But after that i will look into the Goonies Doubloon.
    But i have to say its much bigger, have more mass, so the printing cost could be higher.

    Ok, i searched for good reference Pictures of the Doubloon and its a Nightmare. XD
    98% of all Photos i found are replicas and not even two of them are the same.
    Then there is the weathering, many details on the Coin came from this.But if i include the weathering in the 3D Model, its possible that details get lost if its get painted.
    If i did not include these details, it will look totaly different. ^^

    I think i will make one, but not yet. I have more Time in April.
    It will take much more Time, getting good Picture, figuring out what to model and sculpt and what not.
    The biggest difference to the other Coins i make is, its not A coin, its THE coin. ^^
    The other coins are one of many, everyone can make a mold of it, cast them and if the mold, the cast or even the print is not 100%, its not a Problem. There are hundreds or thousands of these coins in the story, movie, game, whatever. And one of them could have this imperfections.

    This Coin on the other hand has to be perfect. ^^

    Sooooo, the last one (at least for this week)

    Two Faces Double headed silver Dollar.
    Booth sides are UNSCRATCHED, so you can scratch one side by yourself.

    Because i wanted this Coin in the rights dimensions, its not possible to have it in every Material.
    But its funny that its printable in the most expensive Materials.
    So, even if i didnt made the expensive materials available for the other Coins, this is a Silver Dollar.
    So i made him available in Silver. ^^

    Here is a side-by-side comparsion of a real 1922 Silver Dollar and the Model:
