I have also several worn off gold coins so they look chrome silver now. My crown is also getting silver. :pir-hmpf_bad:
Now I keep my coins and gold things in a special plastic bag to keep them in good condition. Gold and silver swords for example get crappy very quickly too.
Chrome gold and silver are quite fragile colours.

I've got at least 2980$ in coins. Next to that I have a fair amount of jewels/gems, gold "nuggets", golden crowns, chrome armor, inca/nazca/aztec gold piece, several chrome swords, daggers and arrows (from the aquazone theme) and a few 100$ bills. I also have a golden plate and golden cup/chalice, but they're not chrome.
I should have over 35 complete sprue's according to my set list, worth 100 gold each, but many second hand sets don't include all coins (or have playmobil currency as replacement)+ I might have lost quite a few+ threw some away that had no gold left on them at all, they were so faded.

But one cool thing is my friend who owns a jewelry store gave me some real emeralds to use in my treasure.. they are uncut emeralds and I have to return them to him, but they are emeralds none the less.. I will post pics of it this week...

According to my set list, I have 2300 worth of coins, however, I have two sealed Race for Stolen Treasure and I can't actually guarantee that I have the coins from all the pre-dark ages sets. I'll have to dig through everything and add that stuff up.
All time favorite: the original Imperial Flagship
Modern favorite: Race for the Stolen Treasure (X5 and counting)

I've wanted to post in this thread for a while now, but never had time to sit down and count.  Well today, I had some time to sit down and count.

$23,360

No joke.

In fact, here is a snapshot that someone took, it was in a baseplate cave.  (Remember, I had some time, not a lot of time.)

Now, who's bold enough to try and take it?

Based on your posts, I made the list of our welthiest citizens so far:

(member - total value in gold)

Stash2Sixx - 23360
Commodore Hornbricker - 15470
Legokilt - 4620
Brig. Brick - 3450
Fluyt - 2980
Thee Pirate - 2300
Blackheart Brit - ~2000
Dennimator - 1980
hurdy-gurdy pirate - 1870
Captain Blackmoor - 1010
Ryan_T - 910
ImperialScouts - 860
Admiral Croissant - 770
Quarryman - 700
Legorski - ~600
phantom6700 - 600
Captain Becker - 320
lisqr - 200


Everyone who posted their sum is on the list, except prof1515 who's been banned.

Congratulations Stash2Sixx! You will soon be blogged as our welthiest member so far.

Go to Classic-Pirates.com

Everyone please keep in mind that olny gold coins were taken into account, as their value can be easily added up. We don't know the exchange rate of jewels and crystals (perhaps we should create one?).

The list is of course open so everyone feel free to share your own sum with us, or update your previous sum if you've become richer or (hopefully not) poorer. I for one must finally collect all my coins and count them.  :pir-classic:

I wanted to comment on this topic a long time ago but it kept slip off my mind until I read the recent CP post of Stash's Treasure haul!  :pir-grin:

That's is a lot of gold coins. I also need to find out how many "opened" treasures that I have in my collection. It's good to know who are the richest Pirates in EB and now you know who to rob too.  :pir_laugh2:

My currently treasure in coins is 420. :pir-look:  But its kinda annoiying couse my treasure is mostly gems :pir-sceptic:
