We’ve seen Call of Cthulhu goodies vanish from Kickstarter or get renamed after a polite nudge from Chaosium’s lawyers. Cthulhu is one IP, but the iconic ‘Call of Cthulhu’ RPG is firmly Chaosium.
Goliath Coins has secured official permission for Call of Cthulhu gaming and display coins. The company has a track record of coin success and has found it again, although the funding goal was low for this campaign. There’s about a month left to run on Kickstarter.
As these coins are official, there’s a backstory for each on how they came into being for the Cthulhu Mythos. That means you can incorporate them into your Call of Cthulhu games and later, at gaming conventions, swap stories as to the horrible fates shared by the characters who found them.
Each coin has;
- Antique plating
- Two-sided design
- Each coin comes with an acrylic-type two-piece display stand
- Coins are made from a solid zinc alloy metal
- Coins are 2.75 inches (69.85 mm) in diameter
- Each coin weighs almost 4 ounces
- Coins are about 6 mm thick
Backers who pledge $22 or more and are based in the United States get a coin of choice as a reward. There’s shipping to pay.
Those who pledge $44 and can be anywhere in the world get two coins as a reward.
Three coins unlock at $66 and four at $88, with that progression topping at $199 for ten coins, including Kickstarter exclusives.
Backers won’t have a long wait as Goliath Coins estimate a June 2023 delivery.
