I quote from the Xprim777 polymerbit reference thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2393303

"The Polymerbit 'Canton of Zug' 5 mbtc innovates on Polymerbits' public and private key technology by offering a ready made fully working solution. Zug is commemorated on this note not only due to thier  'crypto valley' nickname, but due to thier open innovation & start-up policies that have helped to grow various crypto currencies and ICOs. "


LOT 2: Polymerbit Northern Cardinal #44/66 - FUNDED by polymerbit with 0.005btc + COA

STARTING BID: 0.009BTC
MINIMUM BID INCREMENT: 0.001BTC

Pictures (click for larger):


I quote from the Official northern cardinal sales thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5146908.0

“The Northern Cardinal 0.005 BTC loaded note is intended to show our commitment to innovation and improving our products. It also marks our return to providing paper wallets to the community. This note has been printed with new brand new equipment and uses the Secure Polymerbit Substrate introduced in April 2019.

The design efforts on this note alone have exceeded 100 hours, which we hope is evident in the quality of this release. A major effort was undertaken on coming up with a meaningful design. The Northern Cardinal features a representation of the blockchain. On its reverse, the bird is prominently displayed.

0.005 Bitcoin (5 mBTC) must be provided by the buyer. Note cannot be purchased unloaded. Keys produced by Adam Pinder.

Note designed & printed in Switzerland. Keys printed in UK.”

(Printed on a genuine 1000swiss franc bill) + COA

STARTING BID: 0.15BTC
MINIMUM BID INCREMENT: 0.005BTC

I quote from the Xprim777 polymerbit reference thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2393303

" What is it? :

The 5th series 1000 Swiss Franc note was produced between 1956 to 1978 and was one of the most valuable notes on earth. In 2000, its value was nullified by the Swiss National Bank (SNB). A bank in a country renowned for being historically one of the most stable.
 
This banknote is famous for its striking imagery of La Danse macabre(i.e. the dance of death). Originally, its design suggested a universal and inevitable part of life- all things must end.
 
This note has been amended to change the meaning of its image. It attempts to highlight the fragility of centralised fiat based currency and instead suggests the usage of crypto currency to mitigate against such devaluations.

 
Is the note genuine?
 
Yes. Original notes from the 1960’s and 1970’s were sourced in Switzerland and prepared for printing on. The original underlying design was created by Pierre Gauchat and printed by De La Rue in London, England.

you're absolutely right!
The zug note has a private key under the hologram but came unfunded.
Therefor I reduced the starting bid for lot 1 to 0.004, in stead of 0.009
Thanks for pointing that out! Cheesy

Good Luck bidding
