Have you ever thought of creating a No Face Value Coin? One where we can buy it without value (and the face doesn't claim some value) and then we can send whatever we like to the address and give it to others as a gift. Sort of like a bearer bond. I thought of buying some 5 BTC coins for this purpose but I was worried the face value may confuse the recipient, or they may forget it has a higher value (or mix it up with other coins).

He has this (for larger gifts) it is on his web site at https://www.casascius.com near the bottom of the order form it is called the "0-Bitcoin (Non-Denominated) Gold Plated Bar"

They are 5.1 BTC each.

For smaller gifts just use bit checks and put any amount on them and send them.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

I have an engraver and will generally engrave the denomination of your choice on request at no charge.

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 wallets instead.

Oh, that's interesting and I hadn't noticed it. Thanks.

You mean for this one above, right? Is there a photo of the bar somewhere?

Does anyone know how long it takes to get the 10% bitcoin rebate from memorydealers?

They have this on their website

To receive a 10% rebate in Bitcoins pay with credit card, PayPal, or wire transfer and use this coupon code: BTC2012

Not a huge rebate but I am interested in buying some to handout to my friends and this makes the price a bit more bearable.

These look awesome but...

Why would you buy this given the current state of the Bitcoin market/economy?

This might be nice as an investment if there was a good indicator that your investment would give you any kind of return.  I don't see good reason to believe this right now.

These would also be nice if I could take them and walk into a store and give them to a merchant to purchase goods.  This just isn't possible unless you live around the corner from Meze Grill.  

My conclusion:  This is novel, awesome looking, and way before it's time, but in this case being 'way before it's time' is not in the interest of the consumer.

Edit:  However, if you're an early adopter and have 10,000+ BTC stored in a wallet or exchange, this might be a good way to secure your coins; after all, for you it would be all profit anyway and you can afford for the price to drop.  But do you really want to lug around/store 10,000+ of these bad boys?  Maybe 100 BTC coins for the big dogs might be a good idea for the time being.

They would be more useful if there were more brick and mortar stores that accepted bitcoin.

Not bad actually the 1 BTC coins are a bit small but they flip well personally I like the 25 BTC coin size. Some people might consider it a big coin to flip but I like it kindof like a challenge coin.

1. The web site logs kept until I format the drive running the server... This is a small potatoes project

2. My shipping software remembers your address in the history. So probably matters little how long I try to keep your address.

Sensitive order? Use Tor and pgp and ask me to handwrite the address. The only issue is I will probably have a hard time forgetting your order Smiley

Help! I seem to have rubbed off the public address. Am I screwed?



I also seem to have lost at least one of the characters on a 25 BTC piece...

Public address can be constructed from the private key.  Bad news is you have no way to check it without opening it.  Still the 25 BTC should be fine.  Unlikely you can sell it, or trade it though.

Okay. I'm just very concerned about the state of the private key if the public key gets wiped this easily. I actually have all my keys recorded now except for this one specific brass token now that I know they rub off. I guess that's a side effect of showing them off to friends/family.

Feel free to use http://casascius.uberbills.com to recover your full public address even if you have a partial address. Don't forget to claim your coin/bar as well!

hmm.. that is good to know.
I inspected a coin I've been in the habit of keeping in my wallet - and part of one letter has rubbed off.
I think I'll stop carrying it around!

Most coin dealers will sell coin flips individually -- cost is probably a quarter or so.
