Just finished shooting an episode of Pawn Stars for my Casascius coin (S2 0.5 silver "error") after being invited on the show. Rick offered me face value and I obviously declined. Hopefully helps get a bit more notoriety around these fantastic collectibles! Should air sometime spring 2022.  Grin

Fantastic job! Crypto collectables are still unknown to many people, I'm really curious to know how it will evolve in the coming 20 years.

Awesome.  Only a matter of time before we get our time on the main stage!  I hope you gave him the pfft look when he offered you face. Should have told him you got an alitin or cryptographic he can have for face  Grin.

Congrats! Face value tho, pfft indeed!  Cheesy

I enjoy that show for all the random pieces of information and humor. Having a Bitcoin collectible on the show was bound to happen at some point!
Though, what I really think is awesome is that  the first seller of a Bitcoin physical coin on Pawn Stars started this thread.
Just goes to show that Bitcointalk is still a place for premieres in crypto!

TBH, was imagining contacting them for years to suggest something similar, but Vegas is pretty far for me ATM Cheesy

Yeah I've been a fan of the show for years. Was definitely a cool experience but didn't even bother negotiating when he lowballed that hard haha. And only makes sense for things to return to this forum, it was such an invaluable source of information and a fantastic community when I was first getting into crypto. I for sure owe a ton of people here a debt of gratitude.

That's awesome, congrats did you mention this site during the shoot?

I did but they made me re-answer the question not saying it so I doubt it makes the cut. Cry You'll know who I'm talking about when I say "Well known cryptocurrency forum" haha

Wow - awesome! I’ve been waiting and hoping for a cas to turn up on the show.
Well done mate  Smiley
Any idea when you and your coin will appear ? Let us know when the episode is due  Smiley
Were they generally interested in crypto ?
You may well be brought in at a later date as a “buddy of mine “ to validate future crypto collectibles  Smiley

Face value is not a bad offer from a pawn shop, I think they always aim to make around 50% plus on each deal.

If i needed quick cash i would probably feel safe enough a well known shop is holding it and i can get it back when repaying the loan and interest.
I would only sell for face value if really in needed that sort of cash and quickly.

The pawn shop would be taking a big risk giving face value on a loan. If they gave $30k and the BTC price took a big dive, the owner may never pick it up.

This is fn awesome! I used to be a huge fan of this show.  I'm curious about a few things, what did you guys talk about exactly, do you know how to properly say Casascius, did you guys talk about other physical bitcoins at all? Are you allowed to discuss what was discussed or did you have to sign something saying you wouldn't discuss it in detail until the show comes out?  Great job !

I'm curious about a few things do you know how to properly say Casascius,


I’m Mike Caldwell, the producer of the Casascius physical bitcoin in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been an enthusiast of the Bitcoin peer-to-peer cryptocurrency by Satoshi Nakamoto since I first encountered it in December 2010. I have always felt that a monetary solution based on cryptography was possible and useful, and that it was only a matter of time until somebody put it together and did it right.

Casascius Coins were created as an educational pursuit to help regular people understand a peer-to-peer virtual currency. I created them with the belief that very few would be able to conceptualize the value of a bitcoin if they couldn’t hold it in their hand or put it in their pocket in the form of a tangible non-electronic object.

Casascius is a name I made up before ever deciding I would use it for a coin project. The root, “CASAS”, is a simple acronym for the phrase “call a spade a spade”, to which I added an ending I thought would make it sound like a personified Shakespearean or Roman sort of name. It is properly pronounced “ka-SAY-shuss”, though I am not bothered by the variations I hear.

I'm curious about how you were invited onto the show, specifically were you told anything about how many of the items that are offered for sale are actually walk ins?  Or, are they more like yourself where choice items are sourced then appear on the show as sellers genuinely wanting to do a deal?
