Hello everyone,

So I have been kicking around the idea of making a coin for a while but haven't done so because I'm terrible at drawing but Bigtimespaghetti has graciously volunteered to help me with this project! This thread's purpose is to see if there is enough interest to actually go ahead with this project as well as take any helpful suggestions to create the best coin possible for the community.

Basic Premise: I really want to design and sell a coin and donate the proceeds to Wounded EOD warriors. They were amazingly helpful to both me and my family when I got blown up in Afghanistan a few years ago.

http://www.eodwarriorfoundation.org/psa

The first rough sketch by Bigtimespaghetti:



Design:

I either wanted a Tech in a bomb suit or the EOD badge (called the Crab, it is my profile picture) on the front and the EOD motto which is " Initial success or total failure." When working with things that blow up there are not many second chances.

On the back I intend to have "Pull here in case of crypto revolution" or perhaps "Bitcoin Revolution," I'm not sure which is more fitting. This will surround the hologram which can be peeled using a grenade pin system. I will be soldering a metal thread to a grenade pin that is cut short. This way the pin will not stick out too far on either side. The metal thread will then be spiraled with the hologram sealed over the top of it. When the pin is pulled the metal thread will break the adhesive. There will be a small spiral indentation on the back of the coin where the hologram will be placed so that the hologram will sit flush with the wire beneath it.

Does this grenade style redemption method interest anyone or would it be simpler and cleaner to just use "Peel in case of crypto revolution?" 

For me there is a huge connection between a future with Bitcoin as the dominant currency and the political landscape and international relations with the current fiat system but I don't want to get overly political here. That combined with the EODWF donation was what has inspired this project.

If you would be interested in a coin like this please PM me or post in this thread so I can estimate if it is worth continuing forward with this project. Also, if you have any design preferences or material (silver?) I think that here would be a great place to discuss it.  Smiley

I would buy one for sure. I think coins that are not made from precious metals are useless and I rarely buy them unless Casascius made them.

I'll take one too.  When you're reserving numbers, I'll take the lowest available.

Best of luck with this project.

With you all the way here EOD

Love the innovation. Just need to make sure that the desire for the wire doesn't stop the requirements of a cryptocoin ie that it is tamper proof. Also need to make sure that the private key has an element of protection from environmentals from the holo ie it's near enough airtight with the wire still in place

Only other thing I can think of is if it will fit in an airtite, and as such if ANACS would grade

But the wire is what sets this coin apart, so do all you can to keep it within the design

Hope you can tick all the boxes. This sounds like a unique offering. Hope to see it produced, and get one in my (gloved) hand. Any help I can offer, just shout up.

Noted, I think silver is the way to go then if there aren't any objections.

"Initial Success or Total Failure" seems like detrimental wording for your cause  Lips sealed Maybe.. "No Surrender. Never Give Up."

I appreciate the suggestion, the phrase is near and dear to my heart and very relevant to an EOD coin but I will think about replacing it with something else. If anyone else has any opinions on this it would be appreciated.

With you all the way here EOD

The wire is definitely a complex part of this project. I will have to make sure the depth is perfect so that the holo is flush and that I can get enough friction/adhesion that the holo will be torn when the pin is pulled.

In regard to getting it graded I am not sure. Does ANACS grade coins that are non round? I am not sure of the exact dimensions at this point but ANACS grading requirements might factor into that decision.

I hope I can too, I will definitely make sure it is done correctly or not do it at all. I am sure I will be asking for advice along the way  Grin

I support anything that is linked to a charity. It might be a long shot but you could try to contact Kialara and come up with some sort of collaboration. He is a great artist and I'm sure he's willing to help you (if he has the time). I'll definitely buy one of these pieces!

Awesome, it seems as if there is enough interest to move forward with this project.

I will keep you all posted on the progress I make in the coming weeks.  Smiley

On a related note, does anyone have one or two cheap coins that I could purchase to do testing with? They would need to have a pit for a private key. Preferably located in the US for cheap shipping.

I'll donate you one of my genesis first series coins.  I will peel the Hologram and clean it for you. (The cleaning won't matter being it will be used for testing)  pm me your shipping address and I will drop it in the mail on monday.

Edit: FYI the pit is half inch round

I have several Silver Wallets that have blemishes on them if that works?

I have a silver wallet that I can use and a Genesis coin on the way. I think one more silver wallet to test on would be perfect. Not concerned about the condition at all. PM me a price and payment address  Smiley
