I was just wondering if any of the physical Bitcoin makers had thought of the idea of using advertisements on their physical Bitcoins to cover the manufacturing cost of the coin itself.

Some company may be willing to pay some decent money to have their company website or logo on a coin that will be passed around for a long long time...

I always wondered the same thing. Basically, a sponsored spot. Good thinking!

I normally don't like ads, but I think if it is kept small then it is a great idea.  Remember when pennies had states stamped into them?  I'd want to collect them.

Hmm. I first I started thinking along the lines of "Wal-Coins", then maybe coins advertising local mom-and-pop shops.

But then I remembered Wal-Mart cards already exist.

I think the idea of other companies getting into bitcoins is good and will happen, but I think those into it for the advertising will want the cheapest possible medium, and probably one more familiar to the populace. I suspect plastic cards and possibly paper coupons/vouchers will be the preferred method--but the idea itself is still sound.

Too bad BitBills bit the dust, but isn't BitCardz coming about? Perhaps they could be contacted about this.

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

The idea that deflation causes hoarding (to any problematic degree) is a lie used to justify theft of value from your savings.

May be too early, since I suspect most coins bought now are used for long-term storage, so without them circulating around the advertising will be wasted.

I was thinking at this point more along the lines of Bitcoin businesses like MtGox, Tradehill, Bit-Pay, etc may want to advertise on them.

These coins will last for a long long time...
