at $25 for a bag of coins, I doubt there's any 24k plating..these are gonna be brass, bronze, or painted die-cast at best. absolutely do not put them in a salt tank.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.

I'm gonna agree with malkor here. I would not trust my SW investment to anything like that. Also, keep in mind in a SW tank, anything like that will likely become covered in coraline rather quickly and you won't see the surface anymore anyway. Perhaps if you could find plastic ones with the same size you could try them out and see how they looked after covered with coraline... might work.

That's true I guess. Once they're covered it won't matter what they're made of.

We'll be fighting in the streets with our children at our feet, and the morals that they worshipped will be gone.

And the men who spurred us on sit in judgment of all wrong, they decide and the shotgun sings the song.
