Bought a couple of bags, time to fund them with 0.01 and hand them out to pretty much everyone.

Way ahead of you ...



Those are private keys (minikey format) on the back. I initialed each one to give it a personal touch.

Anyone have a bag of these they'd be interested in selling.

They look very good! I just wish they said "Vires in numeris" like the brass coins Smiley

This is great to spread the word! In my next order to Casascius I will take them Smiley

Mike: what is the gold coloured one in the above photo?

I have some of them that are colored (anodized) - gold, green, blue, purple, and red.  I only got a few bags of each color (though I got quite a few extras of the gold)

They cost a bit more to color though.  It's about 18 cents more a coin.  I got them in the hopes I could laser engrave on the back of them (the bare coins just reflect the laser off and it does nothing).  For those who the extra cost is worth it, they're available.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

Mike: I've sent you an email about this - can I check you've got it as I want to append some of these to my order before you ship if that's ok.

Am I being responsive to you?  (I can't tell by your username if you're someone I"m talking to in e-mail)... Regardless I definitely can add these.

Also, I have them available in gold, blue, green, red, and purple.  The colored coins cost (at current prices) 1 additional BTC per bag (18 cents a coin - $90/bag of 500 = approx 1BTC at current rates).  Can mix and match colors.

Mike: am I correct in thinking 80,000 of these aluminium coins were minted? If so how many where silver and how many of those blue, purple, gold, green and red?

I'm not sure I understand the point of these coins. So you minted 80.000 pieces and sell them at 0.50$ for 5.000 pieces? Why? Do you even cover your manufacturing expenses?

The (standard) alumuniums are sold out Mike told me. Only anodize versions are left, don't know how much and what color...

Can you tell if they shipped the aluminium Casascius coins with the stickers holograms? Or do you know somewhere to buy the stickers for this coins?

Coins only are shipped.

Sticker holograms you can find on ebay, just do a simple search: http://www.ebay.com/bhp/hologram-sticker

I have one aluminum blank with the indentation on the back, and one without. Wonder how many of each there are?

No longer buying/selling Casascius coins. Beware scammers.
