Hey friends am going to have a couple Ike CSB sets made up but am stumped finding a cool copper coin that is noticeably smaller than an Ike, but larger than say, an English penny.. Any suggestions?

Use a copper round. Mark Mason makes a set with a Morgan and a copper round that is stamped the same as a Walking Liberty half. They make tons of cool designs on copper rounds and they are just a hair larger than a Morgan but can be purchased for under $3 ea (at my local coin shop).

Poof-Daddy: It sounded like Tyler wants a coin that's bigger than a WL/EP but smaller than a dollar, so I don't think those rounds would work properly.

Tyler: Is my reading correct? There are bunches of coins, but part of it depends on what sizes, and a bigger part on how much you're willing to spend (how many do you need?), and how you define "cool". For example, I really like the appearance of the Isle of Man coins:

but they're quite pricey.

If you can provide more detail, I might be able to help more.

There was a site that had descriptions and sizes of all kinds of coins. I'm sure it's mentioned somewhere here at the Café but the name escapes me....

Found it, but the site is gone.
No pictures but maybe some useful information from the Internet Wayback Machine...
