Hi.
Anyone know were i can get free coins with there textures.
Preferable UK or USA coinage but any kind of coinage any age/format .
[Im bAsically after the textures to put in my texture folder].
Ive tried the usual search for free coin objects but all ive come up with so far is a single free coin on [i think] Turbosquid site.
Much appreciate any help/info/links.
Regards. KEN.

if you have coins ; create your own textures
sometimes you don't find any free textures
you can also try to search coins on ebay ;)

JUST TYPE IN THE NAME OF THE COIN IN THE SEARCH FIELD, AND USE THE BIGGEST RESOLUTION YOU CAN FIND.

You can make the edge of the coin a number of ways,
usually us coins have a ridge - it's just straight lines.
easily created using marble, or a texture of lines. Marble is customization in lw.
also you can use it to deform or bump the ridges.
so that just leaves the coin face - which is just a map - and with some clever adjustments in photo shop a bump as well.

Yeah there are endless sources of images if you use a search engine. My fav is Google.

If you search for specific things like "coin edge" you find a lot of things like this:

128442

128443

128444

For UV Mapping you can take a good segment of the edge an clone it around in your photo editing app.

Thanks everyone for your help.
Did A search for coins as suggested and have, up to now, aquired several coin images[ with back and front examples in hi res ].
Will be looking for more examples.
Together with the coin edging advice provided ill soon have a collection
of usable coinage.
Regards. KEN.

Hey, LW3dG, this would be a good "supplied content" folder!
