Items located in Canada, will ship within Canada+USA

#1: 2013 1BTC Casascius "Gilt" 1oz Silver Coin (1Ag6 Series).
Excellent condition, kept in airtite since day1 (but will likely remove briefly for photography purposes)
Asking: 1.75 BTC

#2: 2013/2014(?) Casascius "Bearer Bar" (Unfunded, Private Key)
Mint condition, in original plastic wrapping and manilla envelope.
Priv-key version, rather than 2FA
Asking: 1.0 BTC

The market for casascius coins seems a bit thin at the moment, and im in no particular rush to sell this without feeling its a good deal - so feel free to make offers or discuss what enables a precious metals coin to be worth [arbitrarily] far more than its weight in gold.

I will make efforts to upload at least some low-quality photos this week if I cant get the time to commit a full DSLR photo session with some proper lighting (Its an art to get the hologram and the polished silver to both look amazing at the same time)



AS OF 2019-08-06, these two coins are still available for sale!

you are probably looking closer to 2 for the coin and 0.8 for the bar, pictures also make sales.

Potato pics as promised. As mentioned I'll try to get actual closeup photos with a dslr asap, so ignore the fingerprints on the exterior protective film/capsule, they are not on the coin/bar itself.

~1.1btc for the bar is about what im expecting, but its a thin market and i'm not rushing to unload it via auction, so it feels fair to be asking a bit more and see what interest there is before i start dropping my prices too far.

1.7BTC for a gold coin is a great price (if you had received it) - im confident that the market is willing to pay >2BTCgiven some patience. my last gilded coins sold at ~2.2BTC and 2.4BTC iirc, but at times with different fiat/btc rates. it might be safe to say this coin is in even better condition than those  in terms of gilding (zero over/underspill) and hologram placement (laser-cut edge is even all the way around, whereas many are a bit offset and the laser cuts are uneven).

My day-to-day is pretty busy, but i have an amateur lightrig and DSLR that i plan to take better photos under. Im confident that both these items could fetch MS67-MS69 if sent to ANACS and its my plan to upload better images that demonstrate the fact.

Thats entirely possible - I know they have fetched excellent premiums in the past, but the level of interest and the effect of bitcoin price can fluctuate, as can the "splitable coins" (BCH, BTG, etc) that are also secured by the same private key.

Im open to offers, but am still in no significant rush to sell this coin so am only looking for reasonable offers (and can post an up-to-date proof if theres interest)

There have been a few sales of these recently and each time the seller was expecting much higher than they eventually sold for.
While I completely agree that the Silver Gilt is without question one of the most iconic coins out there, sadly the market for them, even graded, isn't as valuable as people like to think.

One of the more recent sales... went for around 1.75 I believe

That was me! I listed that Gilt with an ask of 1.75 and accepted a slightly lower offer. It sold around 2 weeks after listing.   BTC was around 5600 usd/btc.

Gosh, Mike did such a beautiful job with those bars (and the coins of course).

Truly incredible.  Good luck with your sale, klondike.

both items just got another reduction in price!

i can/will post updated photos soon or can send by PM to anyone interested, just to prove these havent sold and are still in my possession (stored in a safe for the last year, untouched).

these may be some of the best specimens for a bearer bar and a old/silver casascius coin available right now. There are very few of either type in circulation, let alone stored untouched over the last several years!

Any interest?

I've always seen the Casascius coins as a sort of hedge against the greater bitcoin market.

As BTC/fiat rises, it causes the Casascius coin to lose BTC value but still grow in fiat value.
And as BTC/fiat falls, the Casascius coin grows in BTC value while softening the effect on it's fiat value.

Not for those prices sorry.  You might want to look around and see what they are actually selling for.  GLWYS
