You can trade your 10k bar for two 5k bars. So it can be traded in.

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


That's EXACTLY what a counterfeiter would say! :unsure:

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 speak for me only, but:

Considering their low value (the 250 is less than a rare gold token and a 500 isn't much more than the 400 skull), I'd vote to just leave them alone. Making them brown doesn't help anything.

I like it and I am glad you are giving till 2018 to exchange. Will most likely do in person next year.

You'll be able to exchange obsolesced Reserve Bars 8 years 1 month ago #19

Jeff asked me to post this.

Reserve Bars that have been phased out will be exchangeable.
After the new Reserve Bar tokens are released, if you still have Reserve Bars that are not being reprinted (250, 500, 2500), during the grace period (i.e., before December 2018) you will be able to exchange them for the equivalent amount of GP, but using tokens from the 2017 set. The soon-to-be obsolete 10,000 GP Adamantium Bar can be exchanged for two of the new 5k bars

Hypothetical Example: If the exchange were to be done today* you could turn in a 250 GP Silver Bar and receive 2× 100 GP Gold Skull and 1× 50 GP Gold Compass .

*Don't send them today. This program has not yet begun.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

I should have added "and expiring the 250 and 500 doesn't help anything, either."

So, by "leave them alone," I meant don't make people turn them in, especially not the 250. The game doesn't seem worth the candle to me.

I could see an argument that people might make fake 500gp bars, but it seems relatively low risk.

Perhaps the reason for expiring the 250 and 500 has more to do with consistency than concerns over counterfeiting? It confuses people when you say, "These bars have expired but these haven't." Consistency is very important to Jeff and also to TD players.

Perhaps

It confuses people when you say, "These bars have expired but these haven't." Consistency is very important to Jeff and also to TD players.

Some people will also get confused when you say "these gold piece tokens have brown backs, but some have gold, platinum, or black backs." So complete consistency is an impossibility.

Anyway, it's not the end of my world either way. I have a 250 and a 500 in my collection, and I still will if they cease to be legalish-tender. My 2500 is getting turned in though...

I like the consistency of having all of the Trade bars with the same back, and all of the old versions expiring at the same time. I agree that it would be hard to tell someone that their old versions are no longer usable, when other denominations of the old versions are still usable.
