Treasure count

89 posts in this topic

I am hoping to post my treasure, which isnt all that much after the cursed redcoats plundered a good amount of my pirate-accumulated wealth, but soon Mr. Bricklink order should be paying me a long overdue visit :pir-classic:

not to mention it seems my camera has been misplaced...

Looked up the sets with pirate gold and counted that I should have 12 lots of coin thingies, but I remembered that somehow I had extra. So I got them all out and counted them: 12x 40, 14x 30, 14x 20, 14x 10 & 6x the-middle-bit. (Includes one lot still stuck together). Total = 1320 pirate gold currency. Not bad considering I haven't touched pirate Lego since 1993 or something. I took a photo but keep forgetting to bring the camera to put it online - will do eventually.

Yes, I used to count the-middle-bit as money too, but I gave it a value of 50 since it was bigger than the coins. Also, I (just) managed to fit all my horde in 2 treasure chests. This means I have quite a few empty - and some with jewels & gold (yellow) goblets or round plates. Hello castle.

Finally remembered to get the photo off the camera.

I also found another middle bit in my bag of jewels (Lego jewels I mean). In addition to the photo and what I mentioned in the previous post.

If you live in one country and your currency is higher than another country do you have more ??? :pir-tongue:

I'll try do this but I only have about 10 coins.

Wow, I'm AMAZED at how close my count is to Stash2Sixx's. I just counted them up and got:

10's: 233

20's: 241

30's: 232

40's: 235

Total Value: 23510

Of course, S2S posted his count back in May, so he's probably got me beat by now. But in theory, I can add the ones that my wife has (we're slowly combining our collections), but she can't find hers at the moment.

Orange jewel - 100$

Light blue jewel - 200$

Dark blue jewel - 400$

Red jewel - 500$

Yellow jewel - 800$

Dark green jewel - 900$

White jewel - 1000$

Purple jelew - 1100$

Gold crystal - 1000$

Out of curiosity:

Known:

Minifig is about 3.2g

Gold value is about $1406.09 per pound

Gold coin is about 0.05602g

Assuming that a minifig is roughly 150 lbs, a gold coin is about $53,844 USD (assuming it's solid 24k gold)

Also, by volume:

Known:

Gold coin is about 58.79 mm^3

Gold has a density of roughly 19.3g per cubic centimeter

Assuming 1 stud is 1 minifig foot, a gold coin is about 3251 cubic centimeters, and is worth about $2,836,910 USD (again, assuming 24k)

That is some expensive gold!

I wish I knew what happened to mine. I know I had a few dozen coins, but, much like my chrome lightsabers or wizard hat/glow in the dark wands, they seem to have been lost during my dark ages. :(

just a quick question, does anybody here keep the centre bit that holds the coins? ... i kind of treat them like a pirate medallion (and their great chest stuffers :pir-tongue: )

Yes, I do that too!

But back to the topic- I have too many gold coins to count. I don't know if jewels count, but I have at least one of every colour except orange(2x light blue, 2x dark blue, countless bright green(because of Mars Mission), 1x everything else.)
