great story to read! I totally know the feeling that you're having while collecting them lol, I get the same feeling when I'm wandering around flea markets.

They're extremely large. These coins are all either between 11 to 12 inch diameter and just over 2 inches thick, besides the bear and the koi fish one(8in and 10in).




I would agree that there is next to no chance the treasure hunt is real.  That being said, still interesting.  I'm not sure if I've ever posted this publicly or not.  I guess my best evidence that this could be coin #10 is that this picture (prior to the addition of gold plating) was sent to me on 2/5/15 which seems to line up perfectly with the time frame.  That being said, this one may have a similar back design and the size seems to be about right, but the denomination clearly stands out as being unique.


^added this because we moved to page 2 and it may not be seen.


After talking with OgNasty and looking back through my notes I don't believe his is Coin 10, but thus far it is the only coin that possibly fits the bill.

Some quotes from WoodCollector (can't quote some because of locked topics so ill provide quote + link)

"9 of 10 have been "claimed" #10 is a design i did myself and will be listed for sale once 1-9 have been delivered to the clients. There will be no more 2015 coins in the collection to be designed or commissioned at this point in time. There is still an infiniant number of possibilities in art that i can make for clients."
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=927942.msg10189137#msg10189137

I have yet to lay out the "top of my skill" on a bitcoin piece that anyone has seen here on the forums, but when you see coin #10 you will understand why it holds a 500BTC price tag even beyond the surprise that it holds. Coin #10 is a true masterpiece and the top of the trade.

You cant anymore unless you have 500BTC to spend on coin #10 when i list it for sale. there are only 10 of the 2015 collection.

Although the above does seem like it changed because WoodCollector ended up saying this which claims he has "given" it to someone rather than make it a sale.

The key to decoding the first part of that puzzle is coin #10 which after much though is being given to someone whom i already chose from this forum. In order to decode each individual wooden coin you will have to have #10 in its physical presence and in order to solve the entire first clue you will need to posses and have all 10 coins in the same physical location.


There are weighted reasons on both sides for OgNasty's coin to be Coin 10 or not be Coin 10, the timeline certainly fits as his was made after Coin 9, similar size to the rest of them all, and OgNasty can recall that WoodCollector reached out to him first rather than Og ask for these to be commissioned.. but take WoodCollector's words for what they are worth, he said that 10 would be a design of his own (even though we know he used stock images) and that it would blow everybody's mind. If he was going to do this why put a NastyFans logo on a coin and present that as your masterpiece? Although I do believe the coin OgNasty posted is beautiful and no shade thrown at NastyFans, it seems more like a branding/partnership sort of piece rather than the coveted secret Coin 10.

As I said earlier though, this is day one and the first other Wooden Coin to pop up. I fully expect more information to slowly unravel, still love seeing this story/journey play out even more.

It also states that no more will be “designed or commissioned” at this point.  I highly doubt that OGs has anything to do with it from the clues you’ve presented.  Just my couple Satoshis on the matter. Wink

I don't believe he ever mentioned it was part of a 10 coin set.  I'll do some more digging, but I would agree that it's best case for being the suspect is the lack of alternatives.

Never paid too much attention to this part of his last post..

These 10 coins are scattered around the globe from the U.S.A to Vietnam, Germany, The Netherlands, The UK & Singapore.

I can't place Vietnam or Singapore to any of original owners.. time to find out who moved in 2015 and then we might have a location.

After reading that I am pretty sure that OG's piece isn't the 10th coin. OG's piece is a copy of his own coins, while WoodCollector made it sound like the design was a piece of art (and worth $100,000).

EDIT: I also find it pretty strange that he went from asking $100,000 for it to giving it away to a forum member.

I believe that was him avoiding the "scammer" label and just putting the matter to rest. I don't think anyone was going to buy that coin and I don't think there is hidden treasure unfortunately.

Weekend exposure bump.
Also collecting community ideas/suggestions of different ways to discover clues if any on the coins themselves. If your method provides a clue there will be a reward for the first person that suggested it.

Will be monthly bumps from here on out, just want maximum exposure right now since its so fresh fresh

What's interesting is his claim that all coins must be present to figure out he puzzle, which I find pretty fascinating, I've been trying to figure out how that's possible. Perhaps only the 10th coin would have revealed why, maybe with pointers for each coin in a specific arrangement around the circumference of the 10th coin. Man I wish and hope this story was true, and kudos to you for tracking down all 9, that's worthy of some reward in itself.

Perhaps the tenth coin is ultra massive and all the nine lay into indentations within it unveiling a map o.0

Really great collection. I also like the Nasty coin a lot. It's some special wood, right? Looks great.

I do not know if I remember the woodcollector ending correctly so may he be still around? Were there hints that other accounts were connected with him? But I guess you already tried that route.

It might be useful to offer a reward for information directly from WoodCollector or informations that are legit and substantially leading to get in contact with him. Might be his financial situation is not so very great. Though it also might be that he demands a huge amount of reward or even creates a tenth coin then. So the chance of getting the legit 10th coin is slim. However, reading your thread, it seems you are really into the treasure hunt and I mean it by the coins being the treasure in the first place. Cheesy

Might be that it is like this riddle some other user built later. This image hiding privkeys to wallets. So maybe the weight of the coins is a factor in calculating gps coordinates or something on the line of a riddle that needs to be calculated. Maybe hidden layers of invisible ink or whatever. Combining symbols into a pattern. I think if this would have been real then a lot of interesting possibilities would exist to create a hidden location of some form.

"titanium capsule which holds the 5,000BTC"

Who's to say that WoodCollector didn't just take back the capsule the last bull run and cash out....

Or even just a random person who had nothing to do with crypto found the capsule?

Think of geo-caching.... anyone can find them

Nope the quoted post is the last time he was publicly on the forum. Since then his account had either been hacked or given away and was used to troll.

Cheesy
The chance is very very slim I will admit. It was my hope and still is that whoever had the tenth coin will see that the first nine have been collected and reach out to me/someone in the community. Of course there are always the "opportunity scammers" out there that may try to contact me but I am aware and ready for that. I never wanted to go on this adventure alone either so I'd more than likely invite some of the original owners, it still blows me away with how well of condition these were kept in for four years. Without them I would have never made it even this far on the journey.

Combining symbols into a pattern. I think if this would have been real then a lot of interesting possibilities would exist to create a hidden location of some form.
This spring/summer I have a couple friends that are interested in seeing this story and we are going to explore the coins a little more thoroughly. Weights/dimensions will all be recorded, getting a pretty strong magnet, and a handheld 100x magnifier. Will probably try to acquire some different types of lighting aswell. Having them Xrayed was also suggested.

This is also a very possibly real scenario. Worst case scenario, I've never had someone hold one of these in their hands and not say "hoooly shit" after getting lost in them for a few minutes. I'll probably have a custom shelf made that allows them all to stand upright. Or a coffee table that allows them all to be laid down into it and then glass encased.

Make a 9-panel coffee table, where each panel can turn over to show the back side of the coin

Think of similar to a foos-ball table in mechanics Cheesy

Guess that is a coin collection that can't be stolen so easily. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

"titanium capsule which holds the 5,000BTC"

Just thought about the ",", since it's something one has to deal with in coding. The US and europe are using opposite ways of dividing decimals and thousands. In the US $5000 would be written $5,000.00 and in europe $5.000,00. It's surely not a thing worth to mention since there is no real reason for trickery at that point.

Another thing you might try is finding all the old threads and zombifying them. Even if he would have lost the account he might be still here and wants to observe developments on the topic. Be it for being in risk of some kind because he made something bad or watching for opportunities. In any case, he might get a notice through a new account about a new post in the old threads.

Please ALWAYS contact me through bitcointalk pm before sending someone coins.

First time I have seen the type of wood specified .  The nastyfan coin says purpleheart wood.    Were the other nine coins made of pupleheart wood?  Looks like it from the photos but, can't tell for sure.

The dolphin

WoodCollector specified each type of wood in the list of coins I quoted him on in the first post here. Coins 1 and 2 both were Purpleheart. I believe that was put at the top of the NastyFans wooden coin because the silver and gold rounds/seats always listed the type of precious metal like that. Example 1oz .999 Fine Silver , 2oz .9999 Fine Gold. Makes sense if he was trying to replicate a NastyFans coin, otherwise the top would be missing a "detail" of sorts.
