    Hi,

    This is my first post the the RPF!

    I'm looking for some good reference images for the Spanish gold coin in Uncharted: Drake's fortune, also seen in the loading screen. I want to try to print one.
    Looked everywhere but only found some low res ones (like:http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2008/10/unchartoph.png).

    Any help is much appreciated.

    I know shapeways has one, and a very good looking one I might add, but I didn't pay way-to-much money for my 3d printer to be using shapeways ;)
    Plus I think it's a good practise to try and model it by reference photo's.

    The back side is copied from the real Spanish coins 1556-1598 minted in Lima/Potosi (Peru) with the crest of Phillip III of Spain.

    The front is made up with ET INDIARVM REX around the outside and PLVS VLTRA over the building.

    Not exactly a close replica, but fun enough for now. Now I have to wait for my shipment of bronzefill filament to arrive.

    Nice job. If you ever do a more screen accurate version, I'd love to see it.

    It's getting there, still not 100% accurate. I think it looks to perfect, if you look at the references it's misshaped and distorted in areas. Looking good though!
