This is a group buy for:

10 Silver Sparrows + Certificate and display stand.

The coin is 1oz .999 silver and the certificate is a work of art.
Each coin is loaded upon delivery with 1BTC.

UK only.



https://recalescencecoins.com/coins/


I've emailed Dustin (nice guy), and he can offer a 15% discount for orders over 10 coins.
He will also only charge .22 postage for 10 coins altogether (instead of .22 for one), Import duty would be about £9, so .32 would cover p&p+import duty for 10.
UK signed for Special Delivery next day is £6.22p and 80p for a jiffy bag = £7, or .076 BTC each.
I'll charge 0.036 each which will be the handling, extra unexpected customs charges per coin and any escrow fees.

(prices below change daily due to BTC worth and are just an example to illustrate the savings, the price paid upon checkout, verified by Dustin, will be what the Group Buy is calculated from, you will be refunded the difference).
So, after doing the maths, each coin would land a .17 saving; 1.84  BTC per coin + P&P to UK; Whereas though this groupbuy you can buy for 1.67BTC per coin.

The price of the coin will go down in BTC, as the price of bitcoin goes up; the difference between what you pay to enter the groupbuy, and the price I pay for them on checkout will be refunded to your wallet.  The same with UK Special Delivery; as bitcoin goes up, the cost for special delivery in BTC will go down and the difference will be refunded to you based on the price of bitcoins when I rebuy back from the post office (all refunds processed at localbitcoins.com buy bitcoins rates).

Coins can be collected in person from Cambridge too!
Dustin has my postal address and kindly would release it on this thread with my permission should anything bad happen.

The coins are sealed with a solvent proof seal masking the private key, use gloves, this is extra anti-tamper resistant (solvent proof).  If the seal is intact it has not been tampered with.

If you are interested, please reply to this thread and we will see if it is a goer after 10 intrests.  I'd like to do more of these kinds of group buys in the future.

Any questions / comments please let me know what you would like to make this group buy work.

I would go so far as to say you would risk destroying the private key if you use solvents on the coin, but this isn't crack proof by any means. It is however risky.
Edit 1: To further clarify, the hologram itself is not resistant at all to solvents. The private key, however, could be destroyed.

You can bare hand the private key, although I would recommend wearing gloves. If you bare hand the keys, depending how sweaty you are and if you are deliberately trying to rub off the key, it takes a little, to a moderate amount of effort.

Edit 2: Here's an example of what you guys would be getting:



Avoid the Censored /r/Bitcoin on Reddit.
/r/BTC allows open discussion, and public moderation logs.
