How do Casascius coins work? Are they basically paper wallets that you can then import into your wallet?

Yepp

Inside the coin there is a paper-wallet code. You can see parts of it trough a "peeping hole"

To get to the adress, you need to tear off a sticker that will be partially destroyed so that you cannot reseal it without it beeing obvious that it has been opened.

BitCoin is NOT a pyramid - it's a pagoda.

The Bitcoin address is visible.

The private key is hidden behind an hologram.
