    First, I need to thank all you guys for all the work you have done in making Amiibo cards. I followed your instructions and advice and made a set for myself and all went perfectly.

    When I was making my cards, I had an idea and I tried something I had not seen (granted I didn't search alot). So presenting my Amiibo Coins!

    For those who are interested on how I made these, I used the following:
    Random11's images for the Zelda Cards
    Silhouette Studio to make the coin shapes and to prep for cutting with a Silhouette Cameo
    Glossy Photo Paper
    White Card Stock
    Coin Containers from eBay
    NFC Tags

    So my steps were:
    1) I made the coin fronts and backs in Silhouette Studio and setup all the coins to cut the correct size.
    2) Printed the coins on my printer on Glossy Photo Paper
    3) Cut the coins with my Silhouette as well as 2 pages of blank coins
    3) Stuck the NFC tag on the back of the coin
    4) Sandwiched 4 Blank Coins between the front and back to increase the thickness of the coin and placed them in the coin container. I didn't glue these as the coin container holds them well.
    5) Wrote the NFC Tag

    Here is a link for a Google Drive location that has a PDF with all the coins and my file for Silhouette Studio.

    You know the drill, personal use only. Not for resell. Your mileage may vary.

    You should have a case of some sort so these don't get lost. Maybe a rack they can stand up in like the ones you see near car drink holders?

    And on that note, I decided to throw something together. I found an old "jewlery" bag in a drawer that I was keeping in case I ever found a use for it. Make some Symbols out of HTV and Voila! A bag to hold the coins!

    This is exactly what I wanted! Thanks for making this post, I'm finally inspired to make coins out of my tags.

    Wow, you went all out on this. Taking no credit away from Random11 who did awesome work with the cards, but Amiibo coins in a Zelda bag? Thats as creative and as cool as it gets. I wouldn't be surprised if big N starts marketing a similar concept in the future. Well done.

    I cross-posted these pictures somewhere else and it was pointed out that these are basically amiibo pogs.

    @Hitokirikai Concerning the bag, can you elaborate on "Make some Symbols out of HTV"?

    Ok, I found the Triforce Symbol and Sheikah Symbol online. I used Silhouette Studio to make the "pattern", then I used my Silhouette Cameo Cutter to cut the pattern out of Heat Transfer Vinyl (kinda like a fancy iron-on). Then I used an iron to transfer the vinyl onto the Jewelry Bag that I had. Took about 10 minutes from start to finish.
