I think it would be neat to have a rainbow shine type effect on this, if that's even possible.

Yeah.  I have no clue how this all works or the pricing that goes into materials.  But could a completely clear glass, plastic, whatever coin be made.  The L etched on the coin itself.  Maybe a circle frame as well.  Then have a layer of see through hologram sticker placed on top that would make it have that shine?  Would that look cheap in the end though?  More toy like than solid? No solid coin jokes people lol.   I have large image files of the L design, there are rapidshare links in the Litecoin design contest thread of psd files.

Oh hey I just thought of something...

my laser machine can cut AND engrave acrylic.  I could make transparent litecoins no problem.  Now, no way to hide the private key... but neato as a collector's item.

Perhaps you could mess around with refraction of light to make the private key latent until the coin is cracked or opened, each of which would change visibility.

Or maybe you could make it like a glowstick (dye would go from clear-black), just bend the coin and the ink/dye comprising the private key would appear. I'm not sure if you would need to put the dye on some medium to keep it from being damaged though... The coin would still be mostly transparent.

Perhaps make and outer layer that's UV-blocking and a UV-sensitive private key on and inner layer. That way, it is transparent to the visible spectrum, but once you remove the UV-blocking layer, you can place the private key layer under a black light to view it.

Since it doesn't seem like we had enough interest to do a bulk order for a custom Litecoin bar yet, I asked casascius to make me a personal one. And he also made me some transparent acrylic coin!
Here's a picture of what he's sending me. The hologram has not been put onto the bar yet.



If you are interested, you may want to ask casascius to see if he would make you one also. Since it's a custom order, it won't be cheap though.

I want one of those.   Shocked    What is the cost that goes into the acrylic coins?   Or I guess the better question, what would be the dollar selling price to one of those as a novelty, without any LTC attached to it if that isn't determined yet.

neat looking litecoins! i don't have enough for a physical coin but i'm all for it! it really helps ppl understand that crypto currency's do have value. its funny bc i've been showing ppl my physical bitcoins and they are like "oh so they are actually worth something".  sigh, still its got a few ppl do go to bitcoin.org so i'm sure litecoins would also help.

The transparent ones are just fun little acrylic litecoins made to look like BitcoinPorn's design. See BitcoinPorn's signature above. They don't have any embedded litecoins.

Too good to be true.

But maybe still useful.

I don't know anything about plating, but if anyone's interested in a steel bar with an L in it, I have access to a CNC mill and steel bar. Might look like silver if you polish it and don't let it rust. Or if someone else is willing to plate it...

Darn, too bad I was too lazy to check the link.

Could still etch a QR code onto the back of them









Any plans to sell or give away some of those transparent coins?

Sure, I could give them away. I guess I will only charge for shipping. Who wants one?

I can probably just put one in a first class envelope and send it. That should work, right? So only 44 cents or 70 litecoins. I will only accept litecoins. Smiley

70 ltc for a physical litecoin. Is that a good deal? :p
