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.


Agreed, the best time to sell physicals is when the btc/usd price is low, you get more Btc premium. But try peeling it when BTC is at $50k, it's a hard decision. I just buy them and keep them for my kids. Literally it's Bitcoin I'll probably never sell. I might be interested, will hit you back in a couple days if still available.

Thats my thought too - but i have more than one coin from the gilt series (they are unbelievably gorgeous) and could benefit from having more liquidity. having an entire bitcoin sealed like this is a big-fish collectible now, rather than something every bitcoiner wanted to have back in 2015.

Hence, finding the right buyer - this is an excellent candidate to get graded!

I believe you should get your 1BTC silver graded. It genuinely would help with your sale in my opinion. Graded and slabbed coins typically seem to sell quicker from what I've noticed. Just something I happen to notice. I could be off but having it graded never hurts for selling purposes. Sure if the grade comes in low that hurts(however from the naked eye here your coin looks to be in excellent condition but that's just my guess as well) but it definitely allows for a potential buyer to know exactly what he/she is getting. As for the Bar it's a cool item but I don't know enough about them to even know if you can even grade those. That would be a question for a much more seasoned member here such as anonymousminer just for example. He does work for ICG and I've met him personally. He's a great guy! Good luck my friend!

I doubt it is possible to get a bearer bar graded. ANACS notes in their FAQ what they will grade and a bearer bar is outside their size limits. It is unreasonable to expect a grading service to produce a holder large enough for a bearer bar if they only wind up grading a few but I could be wrong.

Yeah not surprised to hear this. I don't think I've ever seen any graded bars but then again I've only seen a handful of them or so, so I just didn't know for sure. Thanks for clarifying.

I've always planned to get a few of my coins graded when the vlaue made it worthwhile, but now that that time has come, it raises an entirely new difficulty in transporting/trusting several bitcoins in value to a courier or ANACS. Unfortunately, Canada does not have any services that are as reliable or use such nice slabs as ANACS

Fair enough. Makes sense across the board. Transporting and shipping are now huge issues to worry about and the added complications being in Canada well that's just a tough one. Beautiful coin and bar tho. Good luck with your sale. Hopefully you find a buyer!

The best think to do is look for whitman’s coin show, they have one in Baltimore every quarter and Anacs does the onsite grading.. i usually get my coins graded there..

only did a quick search, but this is the only "bar" I found that was graded.

By a Chinese grading company: http://www.hxpingji.com

I did find an ANACS slab with a tiny bar slabbed, but the size of the bar was comparable to a US penny....

With all due respect to the Chinese. They might grade random coins especially gold and whatnot but don't count on a graded Cas or anything similar from a Chinese company. And I'm about as pro Chinese as one can get without being Chinese. But when it comes to this stuff I wouldn't recommend it. If bars can't get graded then so be it. Like mentioned previously you're coin and your bar looks to be in as good of shape/condition as one could expect being the only holder since buying it from Mike C.
