Not to derail the thread, but I am interested in a similar topic that I was hoping people can elaborate on a bit.

For those that would like to share, what are some companies that make these holograms? I’ve read there are people who make and sell them on Alibaba, but what are some other alternatives? Not sure if people regard this type of info as “proprietary” or not but am interested in these topics and the “behind the scene” type stuff that rarely get talked about such as what Krog brought up.

  You are not derailing anything my friend....please feel free to post as I am sure other will learn from it too.

   So no offense taken!  Wink

What is stopping someone from copying a hologram that your make in order to sell fakes? or better yet, someone at the hologram printing company, printing extra holograms for themselves, then buying your coin, then peeling it and replacing with a fresh hologram that they made without permission?

  Yes great question indeed!

   Lets say you use the same company that made the hologram...and they refuse as they don't want to duplicate any past orders...I am sure there are other companies that will not have any issues in doing so.

If you are worried about you hologram company copying your design or keeping some then you should be doing more research in finding a reputable hologram company.    Good work ain't cheap,  cheap work ain't good.

You get what you pay for..     do you want security or a pretty sticker....

I'm not so worried about a company printing the holograms for someone else, although how would you know if they did or not?  I'd be more concerned about a rogue employee simply making extra sheets or something along those lines.

  Good point...it can happen to any solid safe company.

Don't rely on holograms only... for security....  

If you are making a coin that uses a hologram sticker, what other forms of security would you recommend using?

Laser etched holograms ....  I think have been used..   laser etching changes things......it can be done inhouse


So holograms done In-house, laser etched, and all coin mintage/address info as mj stated above.  Anything else?

It seems nothing is 100% fool proof, except bitcoin itself. Best it seems we can do is minimize as many counter-parties involved with making of coins.

   Aye ...nothing is 100% fool proof, except bitcoin itself.  Couldnt agree more mate...God Bless Bitcoin!

Thank you both. I guess I also need to look for this card. This is part of early history.  Smiley

 One more idea I would like to place out there...

   Would like to find something similar to this press....cheaper and in plastic if possible. I would velcro the moving rod and velcro the vacuum pen. Once i have holo on pen or device...attach to movable rod...place coin under and slowly lower the rod along with pen until holo makes contact with coin. This will stop any type of shift at the  last second as holo meets coin...and trust me..it happens.

  I am currently working on a collectable project

Forget the vacuum (great idea BTW), I'm more excited about a Krogoth project!
Can't wait to see what you're up to.

Its almost complete....

This is not just for coin makers, but some precise art-making could use This trick. I think about how much pressure could the hologram take? Depending on the type of material you are going to put, it's challenging to hold it too much? It might damage the hologram.

Anyway, adjustable pressure and tip would be ideal for all types of crafts. Thanks for sharing this. I might use this in some of my projects.

Excited to see what you are working on Shocked

It came with different tip sizes...and yes adjustable vac speeds

  Edit...you can probably attach your own..

    Example...buy a rubber suction cup...drill a hole in the middle...attach to the tip and voila...a larger surface area and stronger arrachment as well...also soft rubber instead of plastic..

  Wanted to share with the collectable community an idea I am using for hologram placement.

   Hope it helps current coin makers and future ones as well.  

    I am currently working on a collectable project and of course with it comes placing a hologram on top of the private key.

   Initially I was just peeling with fingers and placing on top of private key area, but that left blemishes on the holo such as fingerprints and was not that accurate as it should be.

   I asked around,  MinerJones and Anonminer suggested the peel and place method, which works great and also prevents any blemishes from fingertips.

   In the meanwhile I had been looking up another way, either something a bit tacky to grab the holo or a small vacuum pump pen..all this without damaging the hologram.

   I went searching for the vacuum and came across this SMD vacuum pen..problem was the vacuum is finger pumped once...it does the job but yet sometimes vacuum was lost and holo fell off.

  

   So I looked for something similar within the same price range....but didn't feel like paying what I found as I knew there had to be cheaper vacs.

   That being said, I looked under black head removals as I know vacuum is used to do the job.

   I came across a nice cheap small held vacuum on amazon. It comes into two different speeds and works perfectly.

  

   Following is a video of the vacuum in action. I used stickers instead as I do not want to reveal my product just yet.

   https://www.dropbox.com/s/f3oo8preyfsm0zq/20201123_085208.mp4?dl=0

      
  
   Once you place the holo on top you can either press down with your other hand or simply turn vacuum off and the hologram will disconnect from the tip..if not then simply use a finger to disconnect.

Smoothie....Job well done on the design of these coins. Love the finish as well.

Last time we talked was in 2017 so its good to see you back in business.

Does the binary in the back of the code translate to anything? If so, what?  Thanks

A few years back I made a thread on these rare cards....

  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3557001.msg36379680#msg36379680

   I will not bid as I have a few thus allowing others to get a shot at one. Goodluck.
