I have long wanted to put out a community coin designed by the community, for the community.

Would be great if lots of people could be involved with this project.

If you need any help theymos, I’m pretty sure that I can get these made cheaper and with a higher quality (see the grades my coins get) than most. I’d also be willing to offer my engraving services, but am not sure that private keys known by an individual would be a great idea. Perhaps more as a personalization or customization option.

Plenty of other makers that can produce coins of same or lower cost and of the same or better quality.

From what I’ve seen over the years when it comes to coins being graded and their pricing, I disagree with your statement. However, I do urge theymos to do the legwork to get quotes and review prior coin grades as opposed to taking my word for it.

As for features, I'd point to the last coin I created as having some great ones.

While he did a fairly big no-no a couple of years back, I think that if this actually comes to fruition then CryptoImperator's input would be valuable when it comes to design.
If we're just talking about the quality of coins that have come out in recent times, I would probably place him near (or at) the top.

Lets not forget oneNattylitecoin...amazing designs for sure.




“The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that's required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust. Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with barely a fraction in reserve. We have to trust them with our privacy, trust them not to let identity thieves drain our accounts.” Satoshi Nakamoto

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,

Great idea Bavi!   (To ask Mike Caldwell of Casascius to design it)

Love the idea for a 10-year anniversary coin.

How the hell you become a collector?Well, you start from somewhere of course and here is one great chance for those who want to be collectors, but did't have enough knowledge to buy some coins in the Collectibles section.
I've been browsing around for a while looking on different coins but never had the bet on any auction.
It will probably come the time when I will join the collectors' brotherhood. All my experience till now was the Krogos' free raffles, in which I won a few coins.
I'll keep an eye on this idea. It will be good start for me Smiley

have it designed by some dedicated forum members like...(snip)...Mjbmonetarymetals.

This is a great idea.  Mick having designed the first precious metal physical Bitcoin collectible along with many other things in this community over a period of ~8 years makes him an excellent candidate for designing a community round.  His original design is already widely circulated in the media in crypto related articles also.

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.

I like the sound of this. We could have a design and print done rather quickly, and be ready to ship before the anniversary.

p.s.  O.P. I can’t believe the amount of users who follow your every move!!  Lol.  Never seen 90% of these users in collectibles over the last year.  They all can’t actually care about collectibles since they’ve never been here before.  That would leave 2 types of users IMO.  People who just want to kiss your ass or people just looking for free s**t!  Either way it’s sad. 

It would be terrible if you created a forum coin and the actual collectors on your forum, who MADE this section what it is, didn’t get one. 


Lol, so you're saying a forum coin, made to give back something to the people who gave the most to the forums, should be given to you, a 1-year old member that only posts in one section, because you're a coin collector.

If anything, coin collectors are probably the last people to give a shit about sentimental value, as this coin is just going to be "yet another coin" of your collection. Stop with the tribalism and let people enjoy things.

Not once did I say me.  I wasn’t expecting a damn thing.  I know I’m new here, but stating coin collectors are the last people to give a shit about sentimental value is about as ignorant as it gets.  The majority of collectors are collectors because of sentimental value.

Maybe even do a poll like coinographic did way back when choosing between multiple designs? 5 designs, 5 choices.

Let's just leave this wierd route this thread has taken alone.  But please dont all generalize coin collectors as people who dont consider sentimental value  Just take a look at cas coins, they are not the most artistic, but there is a sentimental value to them that coin collectors truly value.

Sorry, you're right, I take back that line. It was more sent to anonymousminer, you don't need to be a coin collector or need to have any sort of knowledge about collecting coins for you to be relevant here. I already said before that I'm probably not going to get it either, as there's probably a very short list of people theymos consider extremely valuable icons to the forums.

But the whole point was that, you just need to be a contributor to the forums, nothing more or less.

- Does this sound like a good idea?
Im been waiting for that idea. for commemorating bitcointalk.org's 10th anniversary.

- What features would make the coin especially interesting?
- Gets the value on the coin.
- Unique Number (#Limited).
- Certificate, maybe.

- What's the best way to get a coin like this made?
That is  definitely a rare collection coin. But let's be fair, I suggest the lottery or raffle mode.

Let's do some vote  Cheesy

This sounds like an awesome idea! Really hope it works out.

With regards to the design, I personally find the simpler but distinct ones to be a lot more appealing. It would be pretty cool if the coin design was linked to bitcointalk not just explicitly, but also contained some sort of hidden/secret message. Just a thought.
