For bitcointalk.org's 10th anniversary later this year, I was thinking that it might be cool to produce a limited run of 50-300 coins and give them out (maybe all-expenses-paid or maybe at cost) to users who meet some to-be-determined criteria. I'm not a collector, though, so I'm not knowledgeable about this stuff.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

This would be very cool, to think there's almost been 10 years,hah.


Re: features that's a tough one.. But we have A LOT of creative people here so perhaps have users come up with a design and then we take a vote on it? That would be nice.

You also have a lot of makers here who I'm certain would help out with getting it minted and delivered (if they have the time).

Sweet initiative theymos!

I would love to see a collectible token commemorating bitcointalk.org's 10 year anniversary.   There are many users in the collectibles section which design and produce coins/holograms and I am sure many of them would be excited at the prospect of designing and minting this coin.  Maybe put it out t a request for proposals and allow forum members to help choose the final design?

- Does this sound like a good idea?

Yes, I like the idea. As Minerjones stated there is already a Bitcointalk coin but I that one was unofficial. I'd love to see an official anniversary coin.

- What features would make the coin especially interesting?

Preferably a .999 silver coin. It would be cool if it came with a 1 BTC denomination (unloaded ofcourse).

- What's the best way to get a coin like this made?

How about organizing a community design contest? There are plenty of coin makers in the Collectibles section that can point you toward a good mint once the design is finalized.

Random load.
You don't know before you have peeled it.

Maybe run a competition:
Winners of collectible auctions get one point. You need a point to get a coin.

I wouldn't worry about loading it at all. If its just supposed to be a commemorative coin, just have a design made and voted on or whatever you end up wanting to do, then find someone to mint them for you. Depending on the metal you want to use, and the size, and the quantity you want to produce, I can point you in the direction of a handful of mints.

Part of what makes Bitcoin collectible's outrageous premium is the hassle that is funding each coin. If you aren't looking to make money on the venture, I'd probably recommend against going through the headache.

 - What features would make the coin especially interesting?
 - What's the best way to get a coin like this made?
Sounds like a real awesome idea, honestly. I'm hoping that those lucky enough to receive them won't just pass them on for a quick cash in. Depending on the criteria I think this could be a good way of rewarding those that have contributed to the forum. As well as showing a little appreciation. I'm just wondering whether you need some help with determining criteria?

Features: Honestly, it would be awesome to make the coins somewhat unique to the person receiving them. So, instead of preloading it with Bitcoin I would suggest another thing such as stating why they've received it. This makes it a little more personal, and will increase the chance that these aren't just auctioned off to the highest bidder. So, for example if you were to reward someone who found a major exploit in the forum, and kept it all under wraps, and told you as soon as possible then I would consider that pretty integral to the forum, and you could print something like "Contribution to forum security". Probably a poor example  as I don't have the time right now to think of anything more creative, but you get the idea. The coin itself doesn't have to be designed uniquely, but could have a unique sticker depending on the person who is receiving it. I'm hoping these coins are going to go to those that have shown great contribution to the forum, and not just Bitcoin.

An anniversary coin should have a message and be something people WANT to hold not only long term but as a tactile item.
There are a number of very good coin designers out there. Don't fall into the trap and make something cheap and derivative.

Just look at CI's halving 2016 coin. Elegant design, simple and right on point. His 10th Anni coin was in a similar vein.
You have Cryptolators inspired designs and Natty with his beautiful Elutheria and Samsara designs. Then Smoothies Lealanas and his outstanding "King K" design are truly awesome (albeit a little more disconnected form the obvious crypto)

As for making it, there's plenty of makers out there to assist. From best mints to best materials and sizing. I'm sure you won't be short of people that can advise.

Oh me likey likey!!!!

to users who meet some to-be-determined criteria.
So basically only Chipmixer campaigners get it?  Roll Eyes

Features:

Each coin to be specially designed as per each user's UID and have their UID engraved in it. Or even better, engrave the user's avatar and name on one side, and a default bitcointalk logo, or anything that exclusively defines bitcointalk on the other side.

How about THAT?

Also if possible, load the exact amount of satoshis/ ubtc/mbtc equivalent to the merit/post count of the person receiving it?

Great idea, but what about something truly unique. Coins are great , but what about a hollow sphere, cube or linked blocks . I’m certainly no designer, and have no idea how difficult it is to make something 3D, but it would certainly be unique.

For bitcointalk.org's 10th anniversary later this year, I was thinking that it might be cool to produce a limited run of 50-300 coins and give them out (maybe all-expenses-paid or maybe at cost) to users who meet some to-be-determined criteria. I'm not a collector, though, so I'm not knowledgeable about this stuff.

 - Does this sound like a good idea?

I would commission some well-respected and known crypto collectibles manufacturer to make such a coin & all the things related to it, or maybe a group of 2-3. Also, I would not limit it under 1000 pieces. I would see a pre-loaded coin as much nicer than an unloaded or non-holo coin, even though that includes its own problems.

Of course a non-coin collectible could be nice... But costs may increase a lot, etc. Maybe some sort of an unique artwork divided in even pieces? All in all, I think a simple approach yields better outcome.

This would really be an awesome idea if that comes out as planned. You seem to be consistently giving out some cool ideas but most of them doesn't get implemented as planned right from the report badges to YouTube Videos. May be you are the only one working on scripting and codes and your busy schedule is pushing these ideas to an unknown future date.

I was thinking that it might be cool to produce a limited run of 50-300 coins and give them out
Why is the number ranging from 50-300, isn't it pretty low for such a huge forum? Are there only 300 reputed members? May be you could give around 1000-2000 coins to all those willing to expose their location to you primarily since most of them remain anonymous. Also what would be the purpose of giving someone a collectible coin (which might be quite rare) if they doesn't know what it is?

Does this sound like a good idea?
Of course YES. Some coin makers like Kialara who has insane levels of thinking in designing collectibles take a little higher time than expected, anyways planning soon would be better so that the coin can be announced exactly on November 22, 2019 18:04?

What features would make the coin especially interesting?
A pre loaded one or a DIY coin should be the primary aspect of a bitcoin collectible. The private keys should be controlled by you/other treasurers of this forum. Like others said, may be we can take on the poll for best designs after the maker has released few of his ideas to the public.

What's the best way to get a coin like this made?
May be you can give away the coins to the top contributors to this forum and other small contributors can probably be awarded with a polymerbit note? That could be better actually. There are quite good coin makers in the market right from Kialara, CryptoImperator and others whom you can hire to bring the best out of their minds to commemorate the 10th year anniversary.

So basically only Chipmixer campaigners get it?  Roll Eyes
What makes them superior from other users of this forum? Posting quality? Oh man, what has posting quality to do with collectibles?

Each coin to be specially designed as per each user's UID and have their UID engraved in it. Or even better, engrave the user's avatar and name on one side, and a default bitcointalk logo, or anything that exclusively defines bitcointalk on the other side.

Also if possible, load the exact amount of satoshis/ ubtc/mbtc equivalent to the merit/post count of the person receiving it?
That's certainly a very bad idea. It would become a hectic work for the coin maker or probably the coin will never come out actually! It should be of similar patterns with numbering from 1-1000/2000 and giving them out on the basis of account age of the user. For instance if the user registered on 2010 they would be receiving the first set of coins and later on.

I have been trading at several numismatic sites for about 10 years. Sometimes there is a high demand for popular, commemorative coins, limited editions, even modern ones. I think the criteria are high-quality silver, high quality embossing, good design (possibly BTC logo), a complex and beautiful "edge" (edge ​​of a coin). A size of 25 mm, about an inch, will suffice. Numismatists begin to use payments at BTC, it is already gaining prominence among them. If they understand the significance of the forum, this will be a good factor. But with the circulation of 300 pcs., To the coin collectors, these coins may not reach)). In the future it may be a good investment. It is necessary to store without loss of quality, without minor damage and sunlight, in order to preserve the "stamp shine".

I guess that there would be a demand for 2 versions - one possibly silver, at a cost and one cheaper to manufacture (brass? maybe even plastic?) for the users that meet certain criteria and just want a souvenir.

Lol, I don't know about that but I would certainly like to know what those criteria would be--and I'd absolutely love to own such a neat thing.  I don't even care if the coin was made out of precious metal or loaded with btc or anything else.  It's a great idea, IMO, and I fully support it.

Yes It does sound like a good idea and I would gladly buy one.


No, not a good idea, as there was already a bitcointalk.org collectible coin


But this one will be a 10th anniversary coin so it will be different than the older one.

Will it be a souvenir or a real coin accepted for payment? This is an important point.
p.s. most likely the correct definition would be the “table medal”.
p.s.s. If you strive to make an expensive medal, you can make a case of bog oak or other wood without resin.

I’m never saying no to a good looking crypto- related collectable.
Great idea, as long as you make sure all of us collectors are able to get one Cheesy
Perhaps you can get casascius to make one last round of coins, similar to his superbowl coin.
As the first one who created physical crypto coins, that would definitely be a great thing!

Cheers,
