So Bruce, did you ever get those samples? Were they samples of bitcoin notes or only of the paper they might be printed on?

They sent me samples of security paper.

I am still thinking of printing paper bitcoin.....   But simply......    Public and Private Key Pairs.... on paper.....   for offline Bitcoin dry storage.

problem with any central bank issuing paper bitcoins is the trust that the bank is actually securely deleting/forgetting the private keys when they issue you currency.  For this to work there would have to be trust, beyond that it's easy for anyone to print a private key on a piece of paper.  In fact, I gave a friend of mine a bitcoin on paper exactly this way (here)...

Not sure why this thread was necroed btw...

Just print a private key as a "redeem code" and use the public key as the address where to send the coins. Simple and easy yet elegant.
Would be perfect if dialogs (generate/print private key and redeem) were added to the official client.

Once there is a bounty site we can create/join such a proposal. Hopefully we can convince the devs to add this.

I plan on starting a digital voucher system backed by bitcoins
suitable for both online and offline usage in the very near future.
