SCA coinage came up at the BoD meeting in the Steppes.  It turns out that
counterfeiting laws are broad, and we'd be taking on serious risk.  Coins
can be traded for prizes, like at pinball palaces, but if they can be
exchanged for money, then they are illegal under the counterfeit laws.

The BoD is looking into it and writing a policy.
