Treasure tokens, Monarch token, Light weight coin flipper that doesn't damage cards.
The best parts is 30 of them for $1
we bought 3 of them and split silver and gold.

Nice pickup! I can't help but wonder what is the name of this bag you are using for transport?

Mind if I ask the brand/model of the deck boxes along the bottom of your carrying case?

The case is a "dex protection carrying case - green"
The deck boxes are "Ultimate Guard Boulder Deck Case 100 - clear". Note: dragon shields only fit in these if single sleeved, I had to switch to katanas to double sleeve
Everything in the lid didn't come with the case there held their will velcro straps that ironically enough I bought at the dollar store
O and inside the playmat I have 2 tubes filled with stones also bought from the dollar store
if your interested I'll take and upload more pics tonight, I was just focused on showing the treasure tokens

@Ramble Does Ultimate Guard make the same deck box for either exactly 60 or 75 card decks? I’m not familiar with their product line.

no problem happy to help
the big downside to these is they are not dragon shield friendly
i had to switch all my sleeves over to katana's in order for my double sleeved decks to fit
i will say though i used to buy new sleeves and boxes every year, i switched to these 3 years ago and both the sleeves and boxes are in perfect shape, other plus side is this set up takes the curls out of foils, even my strixhaven foil lands are in better condition then when i packed them
and last note then i got to get back to work, trick to these cases is to bend them to unlock then pull up "think of cracking an egg" ive seen people try to pull them open and the cards go flying everywhere

God, I love this sort of budgeted creativity. Makes me smile every time!

This intense organisation pleases me. Also, great find on the tokens! Who wants a card with a d20 on it when you could have a pile of gold on the table?

I got one of the Stanley toolboxes the Professor recommended over at TCC, it is utilitarian and I like it, but your set up is much better looking for sure! I love it.

Thank you, I didn't mean for the setup to steal the spotlight. I just thought the gold tokens looked so good with a red background. But to be honest the compliments feel really good I worked hard peacing it together.
Confession: the two plastic cases were originally put there for draft nights but was a complete falure becouse the weight of the cards kept opening the doors and making a mess. The coins finally gave them purpose!

I wasnt trying to take anything from your coins, next time i pick my kid up from school, I am gonna swing by and see if my local one has any. Haha. Small town texas though, so i am not holding my breath. They look really nice in the cases, Hobby Lobby sells some little plastic organization boxes with clips I was looking at as good protective cases, but they are a little larger than those I think. So they will take up more room, they should work for your draft cases potentially though. Any more organization advice you would like to show off or share? :p All tips greatly appreciated.

awesome, I have some tiny d6's I use, and i try to keep at least one of every type of token a deck can make with the decks themselves to make it easier on my opponents. I carry tons of dice though, I have one or two counters matter decks so I generally need quite a few dice or tokens when i play those deck

That is amazing, do you ever play on untap at all? I have been trying it a little, seems ok, but i like paper magic so much more. The pebbles look really convenient for tracking information, that is cool
