About Us


Talisman & Coiner Productions is a small, dynamic publishing and creative resources company based in Maryland, USA. We are pleased to be in an area that is rich in Civil War history and legends. And we have a commitment to look at storytelling and multi-media presentations to be a way to bring to life personalities and events that have influenced all of our lives — and to make connections between moments in our history that perhaps have been overlooked or downplayed.

Now that we are in a “pandemic world,” there is an obvious need to be able to share these stories and events on-line and in ways that haven’t been as well explored before 2020. We intend to explore and expand that world in 2021.

In keeping with that intention and commitment, we wanted to express our willingness to forge new alliances and creative partnerships with groups and people with kindred interests. Please Click Here to contact us to pursue further conversations.

We are also keenly interested in developing a family of videos that depict some of the stories and personalities that we have included in all of the “Money, Mayhem & Might” books.

Finally, we would like to hear from all of you “out there” who might may be descendants of some the “rogues who rode the rails and trails” of the furious flight of the Confederate Treasure Train… or any one else who may have an “old wife’s tale” about the Treasure Train’s fate in places such as Abbeville, South Carolina or the sunken towns of Vienna, South Carolina or Petersburg, Georgia.

Thanks to all of you in advance!
