Hilariously I found the hegemonic metal coins to be the worst for telling whats what, esp if they track on their ID and put it all the way across the table. No big deal, but a little harder than say, Covenant tokens
The bricks are the broken egg ones, and while they have the denomination written on it, you can't make it out, especially when they're stacked. They are easily the worst, especially if you don't know what colors are what, as they're all the same size, and the print is impossible to read. As for the Covenant tokens in 1, 2, 3 and 5 denominations, the amount is clearly printed on it, and they're different sizes, scaling up from 1 to 5.
This makes no sense, why do you care what they're taking away and putting out, you should be tracking the total before and after running, how they make change is irrelevant. To me I'd say "okay you have 18, you run, it costs 11, you now have 7." It doesn't matter at all what tokens are put away.
