Currency of the Verse

Postby Yellowjacket » Sat Sep 03, 2011 3:49 am

"Let me make this abundantly clear. I do the job. Then I get paid."

Ever since Firefly first aired, people have been making money. Not in the traditional sense, but in the prop sense. There have been enough versions made of the series currency, film currency and all new stuff, that I see bills miscredited all of the time, with some people citing one artist's work as another's design and vise versa. Hell, I've done it. People are also always asking for links to the various designs, so that we're forced to post links to all sorts of random threads and locations instead of a single volume on the subject, so I thought that we might consolidate all of the currencies ever replicated (or newly fabricated) for the Verse in an all purpose 'Currency of the Verse' thread.

What I propose to do is post every single design that we can find from the 47 bill to Mandel's Serenity currency with proper credit given, and whenever possible, links to downloads. I will endeavor to post the various currencies by artist, so please try to supply as much information when adding new bills to the growing list. I will of course update the topmost post just below with the names, images and links as they come in, so that this thread will continuously serve as the last name in cash money.

I've got a TON more of these, but no idea how to put the large files on the web.
I have the idealized back of the Whitefall 47 bill.
Can I email a few of them each day to you, yellowjacket?
Then you can complete and expand what you have, or disregard repeats.

Please do. I'd love to have more, but since Propcircle went down, I don't have immediate links to all of the original threads and images.

You could also send me high res versions of your bills with instructions on size and I could make pdf downloads for those of us (me, me, me) that want to print them.

Sounds good to me!

I'll start sending some tomorrow morning, Eastern time.
I don't have real hi-rez versions of my bills, but I have the original bitmaps,
which are better than the JPEG's.
I'd love to see my bills as pdf's!

I've got some too that I could send when I get back home. Probably a lot of dupes from Mike but there may be some stuff in there you don't have yet.
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

Mike was kind enough to send over a whole billfold of bills, but we need a citation for these bills from the 76th Battalion. Does anyone know who created these?

William, this is an excellent thread. Most I have got, some are new, and seeing them in one thread is fun for me.

I'm glad you like it. I thought it was about time to consolidate everything. I'm still trying to hunt down a few links and citations, and some additional bills are on the way. Much of what you'll find here exists in half a dozen threads on Fireflyfans.net and the Replica Prop Forum, but there are a lot of dead links in connection with the early research and development threads about fan made replicas. I thought I had a list of credited artists, but I may have been thinking about Propcircle. I wish I had more links to printable versions of these wonderful bills and I'm willing to create pdfs for anyone who has created bills.
