I want to thank everyone who purchased one of my coins for their kind review of the quality and thought behind them. I hope you enjoy the coins. These coins are now sold out. Rest assured, I have some new coins that I have been developing for months and are now in production. They are going to be an amazing addition to the community and I appreciate all the purchasers of these current coins, as they have helped me fund this new endeavor. I find myself so excited about them, I have trouble calming down. They are gorgeous and will be a bit more functional than the my previous offering Stay Tuned! Hope to launch by the end of June. And as we say in New Orleans, Laissez les bons temps rouler!
Coins from Nolacoin.com - which never got off the ground!
For Sale in this post are a selection of physical coins that were once intended to be the main product of a company I incorporated, called the Bitcoin Exchange of New Orleans. The original purpose of our product was to provide a physical coin that would carry the weight of Bitcoin that would be guaranteed by our corporation. We were going to create a central authority and regulator to guarantee the value of the coin (totally contrary to the purpose of a true Bitcoin). Why were going to do this, and who was our target audience for sale? We were going to target the average person who may have heard of Bitcoin on the news or on the internet, but were unwilling to manage and online wallet, fund an exchange to purchase Bitcoin, or otherwise were just curious. The coins were to be purchased from our website, in USD, and they value of the coin would rise or fall with market value of Bitcoin. The customer (or anyone in possession of the coin) could then return to the coin to us, and receive the current market value of he Bitcoin.
What resulted was indeed total failure.
In our attempts to make everything described above legal, our state of incorporation was Louisiana. The regulatory laws with regards to investment banking are more lax, but ultimately still too complex and costly to make our business model worthwhile.
Also, credit card merchant accounts were unwilling to allow us to accept regularly currency for our products, due to the fact the coins could be return at a higher or lower value. In the end, we were never able to launch this product, and not a single coin was actually sold. (Although we did give away some to forum members this past summer)
So what do we have left? Lots of absolutely gorgeous and well-constructed coins! We had a medium sized sample made of the 1, 5, and 10.
These coins are truly wonderful. They carry a strong weight, a beautiful shine, and I am very proud of the design. Each coin has a serial number, which was vital for the proposed purpose of the coins.
Our website, while still on the internet, is less than functional, but you can go to it and see some more photos.
I will be selling off the remaining coins on this forum until all gone. Again the coins hold no value at all
. But I think they are really nice and would be worthwhile for a Bitcoin enthusiast and they would make great poker chips!1 Bitcoin Token

Every coin for sale is brand new, and never removed for its clear protective hard plastic casing, which is included as well.
I’ve had these coins in my possession for over a year, and they have received plenty of pocket time with other coins and keys and travels. They construction is solid, they don’t chip or crack. They have a great ring to them when you drop them.
I am looking to sell off most of these coins in order to raise funds future endeavors by our still functioning corporation.
