The Casascius 1oz 10BTC Silver Round (w/ Gold B)

I am thrilled to be able to announce that I will soon have a silver round worth real bitcoins.

This 1 troy ounce silver round is patterned after my other two coins so they all look like a matched set.  The front side has the big B bitcoin logo, and the back side has a hologram concealing the private key worth 10 bitcoins.

This round will also come in a protective capsule with an available gift box.  It's at the perfect price point for a moderately sized gift (final price to be announced later).

I am expecting a decent chance that these will be able to ship prior to Dec 1.  They will be available for purchase at Casascius.com for BTC, as well as MemoryDealers.com for USD.  I am considering accepting pre-orders, mainly if there is an interest in locking in the price, since it will fluctuate on both the silver and the BTC.

(I am also considering doing a 1000 BTC 1oz gold coin to fill out the set, but obviously this is a niche item only for the serious collector, since this would be a ~$5000 coin.  Would do this as a pooled one-time run.  PM if interested.)

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Awesome!!!!!

So 10 bitcoins of value ($30), plus the value of one once of silver ($35), plus your tooling costs and margin, so something around the $90-$100 price point?

That's what I'll be shooting for.

It'll be a little more at Memory Dealers, only because you're really paying for the privilege of paying with PayPal or credit card and his free shipping promotion whenever he's running it.

Sounds great and given the high quality of all your other products I am sure they will be beautiful.  I will buy some for sure.
