If any anyone on this site can get some in mint condition, I would be willing to pay double their value (in Bitcoin, of course).

i am surprised we even need coins in this world. it is very annoying having coins. i never carry more than like 60 bucks of cash on me at a time, and usually it stays in my wallet for about a few months straight. no reason to use cash when u got a cc that gives 1% off every purchase.

no reason to use cash when u got a cc that gives 1% off every purchase.

Unfortunately, the flaw is that if everyone gets 1% back, then nobody really gets anything back because prices are 1% higher to pay for it.

An ''excellent goal in the kitty'' for Bitcoin community. And this certainly shows that Bitcoin is here to stay and most inevitably take a greater percentage of the roles played by FIAT.

What does this have to do with Bitcoin?

Got to admit these are not the best looking coins I have seen however I guess with plastic notes now being in circulation we were sure to see plastic coins be released as well. I guess in time the way they look will not be a problem considering what they will be used for.

The prices are more then 1% higher then they otherwise be because banks charge more then 1% to merchants for accepting credit cards.

Fantastic, I think its weight is lighter than regular coin, so if bring a lot of coins, when carry it in large quantities, we will not feel the weight, maybe next time I hope in creating coins lighter than plastic ...  Grin

Was only a matter of time was my first response too.  With inflation being so persistent in our present economic system countries are running out of metals that can be used to make their lowest denomination coins.  I wonder if the USA will do something like this for their .01 USD coin or give it up like Canada did with their penny?
