They're cute. They're like, super acceptable dragons because they never want to control anyone. I'm not even sure they're actualy dragons and not just Wyverns who were bred down.
They're not the smartest of the little flying lizards, but they're cute.
Coin dragons are small creatures who are drawn to very specific kinds of coins - though the kind varies by the preference of the individual.
Breeders have generally found familiarity to be the least effective route to encourage egg-laying as the dragons present prized and impressive coins to their prospective mates.
Coin dragons have been known to be protective of their coin-holders, often nicknamed their "Purse," against beings seeking to take the coins. This behavior is only known to occure when the dragon feels safe and that the "Purse" will also protect the coins.
Coin dragons are small, and made into easy prey for larger predator.
Fluffy wouldn't hurt a - oh noooooo, Sparkles!
Coin dragons collect coins into their personal hoards as a result of their size, though their hoards are rarely more than a handful of coins, with a particularly prized coin as the core. So long as they maintain control of the prized coin, they generally don't mind losing their other coins. They may change the prized coin from time to time, though the exact criteria are hard to control or predict.
I think they're drawn to coins of sentimental value or something similar. Like, if the coin holds memories of value. I've seen one abandon its prized coin of its hoard to claim a coin that had been a poor woman's last offering to the church box. I don't know why it valued that coin over all the others to this day.
You want one? Lay out your coins and see if a hatchling picks one. Hopefully, it won't pick the coin of the price for the hatching. Fragile little eggs, I've seen a few breeders crack nests by trying to add to the coin hoard.
