Rare Elements Foundry Raises over $120,00 through Kickstarter
Posted By:  Jill Claire
Monday, September 8, 2014

Did you know that $260 million dollars was crowdfunded last year to support role playing game startups?

Rare Elements Foundry is taking on a specialized niche in this market by minting fantasy currency. This multibillion dollar industry includes, books, games, figurines, cards, apps, and tons of other merchandise. We saw that all role playing games use some form of money, but lack an overarching or realistic economy. Now imagine in this world there is a common currency that looks real, feels real and is used like real money. But you don’t have to imagine, because we’ve created it. Rare Elements Foundry is diving head first into the innovation of gaming supplements, as a startup like nothing you’ve ever seen.

Role-playing games (RPGs), like Dungeons and Dragons (D&D), have developed a strong and loyal fan base over the course of the last 40 years. Market research conducted at Wizards of the Coast in 1999-2000 indicated that more than 1.5 million people played D&D on a monthly basis, and about 2 million people played all tabletop RPGs combined on a monthly basis. The estimated market value is $1 billion spent on game equipment and books per year. This market continues to grow as tabletop gaming moves into mainstream pop culture.

Rare Elements Foundry is a branch of Osborne Coinage Company, and is overseen by Todd and Jeff Stegman. Our coins and medallions are designed and minted by Osborne Coinage, using the same materials and process as US currency. Rare Elements Foundry will be advancing this 200 year old family run business, keeping the oldest minting company in the nation at top production. We will continue to support local job creation and will also be catering to a unique market, potentially bringing more conventions and trade shows to our city.

Our unique e-commerce company will sell products direct to consumers and retailers, allowing gamers to enhance their role-playing experience. The authentic minting process allows for high quality production value and fine artistic design, which will be our edge over competitors. Rare Elements currency transforms intricately engraved art into beautiful three-dimensional medallions that will endure the test of time.
