Could use some tips

So the next week I'm off to a giant summer youth gathering that stretches almost an entire week. During that time there is some time where you could do something creative with certain things that the leaders supply us with, reaching from board games all the way up to small palettes with beads that could be used to make PixelArt. During this time I will sit and weave some chainmaille necklaces and bracelets and stuff in the hope that I might give one away and hopefully recieve a small token of gratitude in the form of pay-as-much-as-you-want-if-you-want.

Anyway, that was a half-side trail.

During the last day of the camp there is a costume party where the theme this year is Pirates. I have almost everything but one thing is missing.

I need a pirate medallion.

This is where you all come in. I would like some tips as to what weave(s) could be used as pirate-ish medallions AND could be produced en masse(?). I would also be grateful if you all could help me come up with a mesh that could be used to make pirate-ish looking coins (if possible).
Think you're up to the challenge?
I'm thinking about using Celtic Star for the medallion with a slight modification. Good idea?

Thank you in advance!

I think it would better fit to a sheriff than a pirate, but I have no idea of what a "pirate weave" should look.

Haha, yeah. Thought so to, hence the "...with a slight modification"

How about Compass Rose?

If you haven't already, just scroll through the list of weaves tagged with Unit. Several might possibly work. I'd say a gold tone would have to be a given. Brass, or gold anodized aluminum.

Short list, of varying complexities, of units I think might could be made pirateish:
Acute Mandala
Celtic Filigree
Celtic Visions Circle 4
Compass Rose
Iakona
Interwoven Mobius
Inverted Aura 4
Persian Inverse Flower
Quadratus
[weave=Snowflake Unit]
Tao Vortex
Triskele
