Welcome to the official Bitcoin Penny™ Collector's Guide — a pending wonderland of useless facts and pointless trivia dedicated to our own little contribution in the world of bitcoin collectibles which we call the Bitcoin Penny™ Commemorative Coin!

(NOTE: This page is a perpetual work-in-progress.)

In this thread, we'll try to answer all of the most commonly asked questions about our coins and company.

Let's start with the most popular question of all:

Quote
"How many different kinds of Bitcoin Penny™ Commemorative Coins have been minted? I'm trying to collect them all!"

We're asked this question all the time. Honestly, it's quite flattering to know that some people enjoy our little coins enough to try collecting them all. To those of you who tirelessly seek to complete your private collection of Bitcoin Penny™ Commemorative Coins, I'd like to offer a giant manhole cover sized "THANK YOU!" You're the reason that we do what we do, and the reason why we'll continue doing it, year after year!

Here is a complete list of all the various coins that we've minted over the last few years with approximate quantities in blue:

2015 CJB x1,000 (NOTE: This was our first production run. These coins were missing the protective lacquer finish. Only a few hundred made it into the wild.)
2015 CJB Error (Medal aka Book-turn Alignment) x1,000 (NOTE: These replacement coins have the protective lacquer finish, but were minted in the wrong alignment.)

2016 Double-Head Proof Coin (DAVE / SN) x4
2016 Double-Tail Proof Coin (Minted in USA / S. Nakamoto) x4
2016 DAVE x1,500 (NOTE: This was our second production run of 2016.)
2016 DAVE Error (Medal aka Book-turn Alignment) x500 (NOTE: This was our first production run of 2016. These coins were minted in the wrong alignment.)
2016 SN Error (Medal aka Book-turn Alignment) x500 (NOTE: This was our first production run of 2016. These coins were minted in the wrong alignment.)
2016 DAVE Mini Physical (Blank Reverse w/ Holo Sticker) x100-150 (NOTE: The exact quantity is unknown. We ordered 100, but the mint sent extras as apology for the mis-aligned DAVE and SN error coins above. We never bothered counting the individual coins.)

2017 Double-Head Proof Coin (IRIE / SN) x4
2017 Double-Tail Proof Coin (Minted in USA / S. Nakamoto) x4
2017 IRIE x2,000
2017 SN x500
2017 IRIE Mini Physical (Blank Reverse w/ Holo Sticker) x1,200 (NOTE: The first production run was 200; the re-order was 1,000.)

No, we haven't ANNed the silver coins yet. We expect to do that in early June. And I'm sure that your goldie will love its new friend. Grin

Before I read this thread I was literally thinking to myself I hope BTC Penny makes a silver version...you read minds  Cheesy

I do read minds. And the answer to your next question is, "Mannequin, starring Andrew McCarthy."

Thanks, HS. We do plan on updating this thread with all those juicy bits of information. It's on our TO DO list. (But it's a long list, so please be patient.)

I know right? I have quite a few of these, but certainly not all of them. The double headed/sided ones will be the hardest to attain. What's the going rate per penny these days anyhow? 10 bucks?

Am confused about if i have the medal alignment 2015/16 or not :/

Flip the coin over top to bottom. if it's upside down on the back, it's the medal alignment (error).

Compare it to a US penny. Flipping top to bottom (Not side-to-side) should show the other side right-side up. (Not an error)

Hope that makes sense? Tongue

Please clarify
I see this in the OP, is it correct?  "2016 SN Mini Physical (Blank Reverse w/ Holo Sticker)"
The mini-physicals are "SN" coins?

also for the 2017 ones.....  "2017 SN Mini Physical (Blank Reverse w/ Holo Sticker)"

From my auction here, I see the DIY are 2016 DAVE and 2017 IRIE

UPDATE #1: Approximate mintage quantities have been added to the OP. Please remember that these mintage quantities are approximations only. Many coins are used for fun promotional purposes, such as leaving one in the extra penny tray at the local convenience shop, dropping a few in grocery store parking lots, leaving one on a park bench, flipping a few into wishing fountains at theme parks, hiding many as prizes in geocaches up and down the east coast...you get the picture...so the full mintage is not always circulating in our beloved online collectibles world.

UPDATE #2: While researching our past orders for mintage quantities, we remembered that all 2016 SN coins were minted in the wrong alignment, making them all error coins. No non-error coins exist for our 2016 SN coins.

Regards,
Chris

Manholes. Are manholes not a BP Penny? Wink

LOL The MANHOLE COVER Physical Bitcoins fall into their own special category of "Bat-shit Crazy, But Still Totally Dope Crypto-Collectibles."

On the other hand, they do feature the standard "penny" front design, so maybe they could be considered one of our standard coins, just a wee bit bigger. Yes, I suppose that we should edit the OP to include our MANHOLE COVER Physical Bitcoins.

Good call, Ticked. Smiley

Regards,
Me


EDIT: The OP has been updated to include all public addresses for MANHOLE COVER Physical Bitcoins.
