Void coins different and rarer than the demo coins - look at this ANACS image. Holograms are still in tact.



These were coins made for interviews Mike did. These surface very very rarely.... Mintage I really dont know. But its low. I dont know whether that means 1's or 10's. But I have never seen anything stated. I have only ever seen 2 for sale. Missed the first, and traded for the second one

Mike mentioned them on his Wordpress

https://casascius.wordpress.com/2013/05/19/casascius-coin-production-featured-in-the-rise-and-rise-of-bitcoin/
No one has asked this yet, but I am also seen “making” some coins. As my security policy totally prohibits creating real coins on camera, these coins do not contain real private keys – instead the paper shows the word “VOID” in bold, very clearly, through the window. I call them “voidcoins” or “presscoins”, as I allow the photographer to keep one or two of the completed ones if they wish. All such coins are 0.5 BTC denomination.

Thanks for the info monkeynuts, I'd never heard of a void / press coin before or seen one.

Is that your coin?

Damn, that looks very cool and is definitely the first of its kind that I have seen! Agreed, thanks for the info. monkeynuts!

I imagine these would be the second-rarest Casascius coins after the 1,000BTC 1 oz. Gold coins? If it is true that only a small handful were produced. Perhaps Mike could pop in here and provide some clarification?

I didn't know these existed either.  Seems I can never collect them all!

Yeah, Monkeynuts was kind enough to inform me of their existence a few days ago and now I've been obsessing over them. Another coin I have to have added to the list...  Cry

Cmon... You know you want to sell it!  Grin

What would you guess it is valued at? Coins like that are sort of tough to price market wise. I would pay a few BTC for one, but not sure how high I would go.

You're right, coins like that are very tough to put a price on. Honestly it's what the individual is willing to sell it for. There's no multiplier or previous sale to really go off of. What I would be willing to pay is slightly higher than a few BTC depending on condition. They're unique and a good addition to any collection in my opinion.

I agree they are tough to price. Does anyone know how many there are?

I suppose unless one was put up for auction or for sale we'll never really know. I would go along with previous suggestions of a few BTC but again its what someones prepared to sell or buy for really.

I really doubt that Monkey would sell a coin like that off, I know I would keep that. Finding such a coin will be pretty hard to do as the people that have them are probably serious collectors.

I wouldn't sell it either unless I really needed the money and / or the offer was too good to refuse.

I think we're jumping the gun here, he already said "hands off" so I assume that means he's not selling it anyway Cheesy.

Given that these are so unknown, surprisingly even to the most avid of collectors, it's a keeper. Everything does have a price. Everyone will crack eventually. Even me.  Wink

My hope is that the journalists or photographers that were given these, valued them. It's quite possible that they wouldn't appreciate what they have. I hope they were not treated as normal blank or redeemed coins.

Knowing how many were done would be nice. But with no funding, and no uberbills, it's gonna be impossible to know how many survive from them.

Lol, could you imagine the mayhem that would happen if monkeynuts opened up an auction for this coin?  I know I wouldn't be a player in that high stakes game, but it would definitely be fun to watch... That kind of auction would for sure go down in history.
