You've probably seen this coin in various Bitcoin articles:


It was created in 2010 by Bitcoin core developer Nils Schneider (tcatm). I bought it shortly afterward. I believe that it might be the first-ever physical Bitcoin coin. It doesn't have any sort of private key embedded in it or anything, though. It is one-of-a-kind (AFAIK).

I'm thinking about maybe selling it. Is anyone interested?

If it has no key it is just a token?

Yes, just a piece of art.

I love to buy coins, but I don't think this carries much value. Defiantly less than a Casascius coin.

User tcatm doesn't have much of a reputation.  No media coverage.  Nothing.  His post, this forum, and your listing is the only thing that gives it credence and value.  That isn't enough for me.  But it might be for some other person.

Not to mention it could easily be faked.  Good luck.

He's a core developer.

Is there any identifying marks, signatures, serial numbers.

Will he sign it, date it, anything of the sort.

Is this coin displayed (picture) anywhere else, etc etc?

No. This is the only one...

He'll probably confirm that he sold it to me if you ask him.

Here are some photos I took.

This is more of a sentimental value... Ill bid 0.02 BTC.
It could probably get you a lot more bragging rights if you had more proof and more media on the coin itself

Are the front and back identical?

The coin is pretty famous, even if there hasn't been much media on the coin itself. The image in the OP is seemingly used as a stock image in ~5% of all news stories about Bitcoin. Try doing a reverse image search on it.

The copper doesn't go all the way through the coin. The obverse is just the semi-clear plastic stuff.

I assume when someone wins this coin...you can toss together a PGP chain of custody for it?
