This is a list of all the physical cryptocurrencys produced and the volumes minted. They have been ordered by they year they were first minted and made available, although they may have been available in subsequent years.

NastyFans has issued 25,000 shares (referred to as seats). As of Jan 2014 each share receives the total amount of crypto mined in the mining operation (at 450GH) divided by 25,000 shares on a recurring weekly basis. This will soon be bumped up to 10THs plus 25MH/s of scrypt power to be added to the mining operation for shareholders. In addition to payouts from the mining operation shareholders also receive a top up from non affiliated users mining in the NastyFans altcoin mining pool where users are currently mining at 750GH/s.

Originally just the one version of coin, where Titan Mint act as the central authority to store the coins value, Titan started producing another version concurrently where the private keys are contained under the hologram from approximately coin number 200 onward. Both types are mixed within the batch of 10,000.
1BTC – Silver coin, 39mm diameter x 3.3mm, 1,000 minted, dated 2013. Available as with Titan acting as the funds holder and private key under the hologram. Both types are mixed within the batch of 1,000.

I stepped out of the physical cryptocurrency business as it seemed a little too risky with current moves by the feds. You can however still print out the bills I used here:

http://print.printcoins.com/

and it include instructions as well as source code (so you don't have to trust my server with private key production).

I was making these back when bitcoins were about $3 a piece, so the smallest denomination is $0.01. If someone wants to tweak the code to go smaller, feel free to submit it up to github and I will update the site. Perhaps they should be printed in mBTC now with some special coloration to signify the change.

This is great! Thank you for consolidating all of this info. My only piece of feedback would be that I have one other line of proofs. PPC Silver with 24k gold highlights - 1 batch of 50 minted to date. Here is a link to the product:
http://finitebydesign.net/product/batch-1-1-troy-ounce-of-999-fine-silver-w-24k-gold-highlights-commemorative-peercoin-proof/

Also, if you want to link to the site, here:
http://finitebydesign.net/

It is a new site I just created on New Years Day and is much better than the old. I have some additional things on the site such as the master inventory of all the proofs produced, redemption instructions, some info on the private key generation process and a blog.

Cheers!

Do you have any images of the physical currency you can share? I'm hoping to add images at some point.

Excellent news - really glad you guys are back. I managed to get hold of one of your old coins and it was very well made.

The latest info does not seem to be up on your site.

Would you be able to give some info on how the old coins were supposed to function, the denominations issued and the number minted. Am I right in thinking these are now redundant?

Could you also explain how the new coins work? Are they preloaded, loadable or are you acting as the central authority who holds the private key? Can you also cover the denominations issued and the number minted.

Sorry for the sparse information. That was done intentionally, as I wanted to keep the information mostly limited and use this forum for discussion and more info. You can find answer to most of your questions at the following thread:

Hey No_2, I got your message.

I made the physical quarter bitcoins pictured at http://serpco.in/#diy
Some software to help people fund the coins themselves is at https://github.com/jondale/serpcoin
Only 500 of these were minted.

Great. That's enough to make the list.

Can you give me a detailed breakdown of each edition you've minted with numbers for each and rough dates if you have them. Even better links to photos of each different edition if possible.

I'm planning to put some photos up for people to see the different types of physical crypto out there.

The only coin I've fully designed so far is the DIY quarter bitcoin which are labeled 2014 and went on sale December 17, 2013.
The previous editions were aluminum casascius coins that I loaded.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=400224.0

Arash, I've updated your section in the main listing. If possible can I check:

1. The date of the original (un-issued) coins is correct?
2. Can you give some info on how they were planned to work?
3. Can I get quantity info for the new coins.

Thanks J,

We started offering both private key and 2-factor authentication for Titan bitcoins at about coin number 200 in the edition for the Titan One.  That is an option for all of our coins.  

The Titan One Silver for 2013, minted in 1 oz of silver, is a separate edition and only 1,000 were produced.  We will sell these until Springtime before moving on to the 2014 edition.

The Titan One Gold, minted in 1 oz of gold, is available late January of 2014.  We're making those in batches of 100 and we're producing no more than 1000 for 2014.  

We're also offering 0.1 BTC, 0.25 BTC, 0.5 BTC, 5 BTC, and 10 BTC this year.  


Also, we did NOT sell 10,000 1 BTC coins in 2013.  I haven't added them up yet, but we'll be publishing the final mintage on our site.

Tim, to clarify: does that mean there are and will always be less than 10,000 coins dated 2013 in circulation or that 10,000 were minted and will eventually all be sold but they were not all sold within the window of 2013?

Update on Casascius form Wired magazine:

http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/bitcoin-stacks.jpg

Quote
...
Now, it’s up the customer to fund the physical coins themselves, and things could get confusing. In addition to selling unfunded coins through the mail, Caldwell will still sell pre-funded coins when he meets with buyers in person.

He says that to make things clearer, he’s going to make a new series of coins for his unfunded coin business, so buyers can tell the difference...

I've posted this to press releases:

Since you have an up and coming section I wanted to post here.  I am attempting to start a physical bitcoin that is specifically designed to be traded and not kept as a collectors item.  I am trying to raise funds with an Indiegogo campaign.  Here are some relevant links:

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/numisalis-physical-bitcoin/x/1557834

If I get funded my first run will be for 15,000 coins.

Thanks for this it looks very interesting. Can you tell me more about how the Embedded NFC tag security will work? What data does it provide?
