We will release more information after Gen Con in August, but next year we will switch over to new Trade tokens. Please see below.

They will have a brown chip to make them easy to spot & special embossed backs to help ensure the token validity.

Collectors will have until Dec. 1st, 2018 to exchange their old trade tokens for new.

Again, more and exact info will be supplied in August after Gen Con, but I thought it would be good to post this now.

Thanks to the Lords and Ladies for their help with these new tokens. They will look great!

They look awesome. Looking forward to this change!

Is there still going to be a 10k bar? Or is it phased out?

As far as I understand it the 10k and 2.5k bars will be phased out, leaving only the 1k, 5k, and 25k bars.

I believe there were 500 and 250 ones as well that were phased out. For the ones that are phased out 250, 500, 2.5k, and 10K. will they be any good after 2018 since there is no exact replacement? Scenario being - say that I have one 250 and one 500.

I'm liking all the different color token backs we have now. They look nice in my binders. And the trade goods being brown will prevent me from mixing up the goods and their components in my plano box :)

I really appreciate that special tokens are being color coordinated. It really does help with organizing tokens. I really like the blue for the transmuted tokens. Oh so pretty!

I definitely think that only the new reserve bars should be accepted after the cutoff, but that's my opinion. If you allow the old reserve bars to be accepted then people can counterfeit them indefinitely.

I'd agree with that, any old reserve bars kept past that deadline become collector's items without GP value.

I wonder if there is anyone with old trade item or reserve bars who's stepped away from the game for a year or two, and might be pretty upset when returning that their stash of tokens now have no value. Maybe there isn't anyone like that?

Are there really people out there counterfeiting tokens? (Am I that sheltered?)

Yes. I don't know how widespread it is (perhaps Jeff has an idea I'd think) but certainly it has happened. I don't think it is very widespread and, in my opinion, Jeff is being proactive before it becomes a bigger issue. So I think it is the right move.
