Out of curiousity, are these actually tied to BTC in any way besides the branding? 

No, just novelty... and a kinda cool combination of two kinds of real money.

It would be cool if somehow you put an off-line wallet inside the coin and issued these with a wallet address that people could use as a "savings" account.

Some dude got imprisoned for what you're planning watch out lol.  It's not illegal, but they got him anyway because he challenged the system.

If they are sold as a commemorative medal it will be fine definitely anything but sold as a currency.

Just out of curiosity, where do you get your silver planchets?  Or are they just coin blanks?

I have connections to a private mint... not sure where they get their stuff from. I imagine they poor huge glowing smelters of ore into little coin shapes, but that's probably not how it works Wink

Not sure if there's some reason that this thread fell way back, but I'd definitely be interested in something like this!  My interest in silver has been increasing recently and I'd love to have a few coins that looked like bitcoins!

I think the Liberty Dollar case would have turned out very differently if they had not

a) printed a dollar value on their coin, with the $ symbol
b) so closely duplicated many aspects of old silver US coinage (Lady Liberty, "Trust In God," the word "LIBERTY" )
c) encouraged merchants to give them out in change to people who had paid in US currency and were expecting US currency as change.

This Bitcoin silver round would presumably not do any of these.

I'd be interested in buying a few. However, everyone should make it clear that the value of one of these silver rounds is in no way related with the value of an actual Bitcoin.

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

Can we get an idea of threshold you need? 1000 oz minimum? will that mean $6 over spot? etc.

Actually they got him because he was using the coins he produced as currency. As long as you did not present the coins as currency and treated them strictly as a hobbiest items you should be good to go.

The case you are referring to is Bernard von NotHaus and the Liberty Dollar. Key points were he used $, In God We Trust and other marks that "could confuse the public", ok BS we all know but that's what they said, and he presented the coins as tender.
