Caesar_476

TheJuicyBandit

Cough *Barracuda Bay* Cough


Joshua_and_Indy

Can't believe a few of mine survived


Flunderpudding

I remember these from the western sets lol


skull_with_glasses

Strongest memory of these coins was trying to pick them out of the insides of other bricks.


Cherrypunisher13

A long forgotten memory retrieved! Thank you


Potatoesarepog

Yo I still sometimes have to do this but with other bricks tho.


squishydad12

I remember getting them from old western sets. Got gold coins from old pirate sets


G_Peccary

If you don't have chests full of these coins then you're a fan of Bionicle.


The_Incredible_Honk

Don't forget the "gold bars" that came with every pack of 4 coins.


CongressmanForSale

Bro… 😂😂 I’m not the only one that kept them?!


Wet_Valley

Of course not, it was GOLD!!


what_is_user_name

Yuup i guess 99% kept them. The 1% was probably thrown away by parents during build 'help'


Kind-Honeydew4900

Exactly! Thanks for bringing those memories back!


Grumble_fish

Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Golden Sprue"


disquieter

Til sprue thanks


Bodkin-Van-Horn

Yes! Can't throw out that center chunk!


dkat

Why not both? How’s Pohatu gonna buy a new mask?


G_Peccary

I'm too old to know who Pohatu is!


dkat

I must be in the sweet spot of avid Johnny Thunder fans who were just young enough to enjoy the first wave of Bionicle sets when they came out.


jurassic_clark3

Lol, as a Bionicle fan, I found this pretty funny.


SH1TH3AD87

Yes


Matches_Malone77

This is an outstanding reply. Be proud of it.


G_Peccary

Ha, thanks!


JakeYashen

Do they not make them anymore???


YEET0MY8BABY

No


luke_in_the_sky

TBF, they are not exactly system compatible. Using round tiles makes more sense. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=98138pb023#T=C https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=98138pb103#T=C https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=98138pb005#T=C&C=95 https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=98138pb260#T=C&C=115 https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=98138pb267#T=C&C=115


ralopop

Even as a kid I never really understood these pieces. They don’t fit in minifigure hands, but they sure fill up a treasure chest nicely.


spiderbabyinapram

Two together kinda fit in a minifig hand.


AbacusWizard

Is that silver? I don't think I've ever seen a silver one; just a bunch of the gold ones from the early Pirate sets. Those were fantastic.


Sowf_Paw

Some of my gold coins have faded and they look silver. I think that is what is going on here.


Ghoul-dan

I seem to remember gold coins with pirate sets, and silver with western, but its so long ago its a faded memory at best


spiderbabyinapram

Western were def still gold. But most western sets had the green banknotes


eatrepeat

This is the only thing worthy of my lego treasure chests. Pearl gold and trans colours don't cut it in my nick of the woods!


AaronPDinger

Do they not make these anymore? I am currently sorting through my old legos and I am just waiting to find a chest full of these that I tucked away when I was younger. I know it’s there somewhere…


TSimms421

One time I had a dream that I was walking through a forest and I came upon a man-made stream that had tens of thousands of the gold coins sprinkled on the bottom. I don’t remember what else happened in the dream, but I’ll never forget that visual of a shallow, fast moving brook littered with sparkling tiny golden Lego coins.


dropcon37

Yes. In that color? Not so much. Me personally I have some gold versions.


President-Nulagi

This _is_ gold!


dropcon37

Hehe nice


Living-Armor

I have a golden version of it, idk how i got it.. anyone know a set that has golden coins?


AbacusWizard

Most of the oldskool Pirate sets.


Living-Armor

Ohhhh, yea i remember i got one a while ago, thanks for sharing!


Worried-Opinion1157

I got mine from Aqua Raiders sets


Deadeye_Duncan_

Looking through these comments I find it funny that most people got them from old pirates or Cowboys sets. I got all of mine from SpongeBob lol


UncomfyUnicorn

Anyone remember the pistol?


rinky79

Brick Bank has a few, for the change-counting machine (I think that's what it was--it had a little drawer that pulled out) and the money laundering operation.


Chislic_

The Indiana Jones sets had a few of these


aarondavidson

Yes, still have many treasure chests full.


TheJuicyBandit

I got these in the Aqua Raiders sets. The good old days


Random_dg

My brother had quite an ear infection from one of these at 3-4 years old.


grafmg

Of course I have treasure chests full with em


V_for_Viking

my strongest memory with these were the frustration of how they didn't fit in the hands of a minifigure 🤣


Traditional_Snow_444

I always kept the center piece too as extra gold...


YEET0MY8BABY

Same


SirZealousideal7078

Nope, just you. 🙄


Idontmatter69420

I didn’t know coins existed I thought they only had the studs


YEET0MY8BABY

They are old think they stopped producing them in 2003


albinolan

2011 actually, last seen in the pharaohs quest line


nivenfres

Yup. In fact, been digging through my old Legos since getting them back from my parents (20+ years later), and been finding them scattered everywhere. :)


ShimmeringGem81

Yeah I have some. They’re from my brothers’ old sets that I now have.


cigarettesandmemes

I forgot these existed. I haven’t seen one for like 11 years


shredkelly

Such a good piece! So many memories. Unfortunately so many of these would have been lost to the dreaded vaccuum


OliveTop8669

Yesss. Wow that takes me back.


Various_Fake_Details

You've just unlocked a memory


Trashman_XL

Still have a few!


derekthedreaded

Yes I do


Franz32

I think there were some in the original Harry Potter Gringotts set.


MissKingsley

I love these. I wish they still made them.


CanadianAdmiral910

I got a bunch of them in the SpongeBob Krusty Krab set


ConsiderationDull710

The nostalgia 😫


Jimlish

Yes, I passed my old bins of lego down to my nephew and he was obsessed with finding and counting them in the giant pile of pieces.


JayGold

I'm pretty sure these are still the smallest piece Lego has ever made.


SH1TH3AD87

I can't accept any other form of lego "treasure" than these. So glad that I have thousands of them from my childhood Legos.


Ok-Programmer2219

I had those gold slabs


RedLEGOmonkey

Ah, I do remember those. I still have some. I wonder why they stopped using them...


Public_Scientist_573

Oh shitttt


Matches_Malone77

Do they not still make these? They were in the expert brick bank I just finished. It only retired a few years ago.


Anon-dude87

I have three of them now and the only ones I'll ever have


VictoryVic-ViVi

They don’t make these anymore? Dang, I better keep mine safe then. Still need to grab my Lego collection from my parents attic…


Astaldo27

Yes: https://www.reddit.com/r/lego/comments/sfl11w/bones_carrots_breads_popcorn_slopes_i_only_have


710Fiend69

I have a bag of dubloons somewhere in storage. I never took them off the plastic holding themctogether.


Ghoul-dan

Old coins best coins, pretty sure New ones dont have differing amount of currency printed ( i vaguely remember old ones valued 10, 20, 30)


BriHecato

Shouldn't it be yellow-goldish ? Or paint wears out ;)


GeantPoire7906

I do ! I still have a few in my brick bank


Spiderboy92

Still have a few lying around :)


Evil_connector67

Yep, i have these


imvryconfusdabtmyslf

Yes


usteppedonmysneakers

Damn I completely forgot about these!


Alpha_computer

I have a bunch of these in Gold From old pirate sets


Nadrojj

At one time I had over a hundred of these. All in chests in my pirate ship. Then ......... I grew up and went to college and my Mom gave them to my cousins.... never to be seen again.


4-me

I feel we need a LEGO therapy reddit for all the sets people outgrew and were donated but now mourn their loss.


Nadrojj

Agreed. I was a child from a single parent household so my Mom was always looking to keep me engaged with something so she could have some downtime. I had so much Lego as she knew if she bought me a set that would keep me busy for days and she'd get to relax a bit without a constant Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom hahah. Now as a parent that same mistake won't be made twice!


RStall86

Oh yeah! I had chests and barrels full of them as a kid.
