Hello everyone... it's MAJOR announcement time!!  Some of you know and some of you don't know, but I have working as a consultant for ICG for the past couple of months.  When Charlie was getting his coins graded we had a bit of a brainstorm while looking at the Casascius silvers he had.  A custom label for crypto coins only.  The only coin we felt that could be on every label was what we considered the quintessential coin...... the Casascius 10BTC Gilt.  I reached out to Mike Caldwell to see if we could get the rights to use the image on our labels.  After a nudge from Charlie and a few emails back and forth, he agreed to allow us to use the image!!!  Shocked

 Shocked  That's right.... Mike Caldwell (Casascius) APPROVED!   Shocked


I have made this a self moderated topic to keep out the shenanigans out of here.



Here are a few pictures to see what we have been up to:


This is the only prototype and the label was hand cut:

More CI coins:







Thank you for looking.  You can contact ICG directly or you can reach out to me about getting coins graded.  



A little FYI..... I have been flying around the country and even internationally to pick up and deliver coins.  Some of you should consider this service if you have high value or several coins to be graded.  PM me for details.  Plenty of references available as well.

Nice work boys! Really dig it. Now if you can just get Mike to come out of retirement for one more coin, all will be right with the world.  Smiley


Edit - what’s the back side look like ?

Wow I like those slabs.  So going forward every coin graded will come in those slabs?  Anon thanks for doing all this, greatly appreciated.

Interesting initiative. I don't dislike them but also don't love them. The appeal of a slabbed coin to me is the actual coin itself.. these sort of give off a coin with 1/3 of a coin for a hat vibe to me.

Also having 999 fine silver in the label but the slabbed coin being brass/gold/other is a bit of a throw off.

If ICG still offers the old plain blues then I see no problem here.. everyone has their own personal preferences with designs of course.

Very cool to see ICG working with you AM. Great community vibes!

Yeah, would have maybe liked to see a more generic label, like just the BTC logo with some 0's and 1's.  To each his own I suppose. 

Applaud the effort though for sure and love that ICG is so receptive to the physical crypto community.  Keep up the good work!

Looks great  Smiley

If the coin is not .999 fine silver, will the label be different?

No, but if you prefer the old blue labels, they will be available.  


The .999 fine silver is only on there because it's what is on the top of the Casascius 10 BTC Silver coin. Wink

Looks great AM!

Awesome work, and I know it is very time consuming - but you are the right man for the job. 

Very cool on the sign off by Mike, and also ICG even offering such a thing.

Great to see some of the coin grading companies starting to take note and a bit more of a serious look at crypto collectibles 😎

Good stuff,

Thanks!

Actually anon, is there a picture of Charlie's 10 BTC gilt with the 10 BTC gilt slab?  That would be pretty neat to see Smiley

We did a computer mock up of it with the new label  from his high resolution photo before the prototype was made.  I will hunt it down and if Charlie is ok with it it, I’ll post it. Wink

I think they look too busy. Prolly fine for Bitcoins...but NOT any of the altcoins. Unless they do the same thing for ALL the Alt coins for uniformity. They really don't go with the Litecoins. A Collector should be choosey on which coins to have that display. Cry   I just had over 200 coins done, I'm glad that I missed this "upgrade".

This is not the place for this.... but I can attest to the fact that there was an order for 200 plus coins very recently.
