congrats to the winner !



Design Sixteen by Mr.BAU



As worldtreasurefinders has said, you will have a tough time getting an easy run of this design as is.

There is too much detail on the gears and it will wear on the die that you may not get the design after all or in any easy means. It wouldn't surprise me if the gears started to break on the die itself when pressing into the metal.

It also should be noted (once again repeating what WTF said) that the different shades of gears will be difficult to accomplish if not impossible when stamping it onto a gold metal coin.

Only depth of imprint could possibly accomplish this and even that is on top of the gear issue wearing on the die itself.

Received nothing  Grin

But think of all the drama you got to be a part of, as well as the entertaining thread you and others provided.  That's worth more than any bounty.   Grin

We have taken a lot of advice on this matter and can confirm the fine detail of the cogs are possible to make on a coin. Granted it does increase production cost and time but we are not making this coin for the budget collector. No expense will be spared in ensuring the finished product is anything short of flawless.


We look forward to being able to publish the finished design and sending it into production towards the end of this month.

We have already made good progress and it's looking amazing!

Just pointing out that Coinographic paid the exact bounty or prize they offered... 0.25 and they paid on the date they said they would with no issues. Thanks Coinographic!  Looking forward to future design contests.  

Just an idea... perhaps only allowing those who submit designs to vote. Possibly giving each person 2 or 3 votes. With the rule that you cannot vote for your own design.  Might be the best way to get a true count... Also, perhaps to erase any accusations of copied submissions, make one day, the submit design day... So, if contest is announced 9/1. and ends 9/30 at midnight, make 9/30 submission day and everyone posts their design whenever they want (or can) on that day.  This way, if people are afraid their design would be copied, they can just wait till the last hour to submit, knowing no one will copy and be able to get it in by the deadline.

Also offer a bounty perhaps for best idea for a new voting process.  In this case, see the portion of my comment in italics above. lol  Roll Eyes

Also got paid with no issues. Agree with campycoin, let the people who actually design something vote among themselves for lets say 50%. The other 25% public vote, 25% coinographic. See you guys at the next one!
Thirded.  Was paid the 0.25 BTC consolation prize.  Thanks Coinographic! Grin

I think what campycoin and LitecoinCollector are suggesting is a good idea if Coinographic wants to continue to let the community decide, especially since I believe there is a couple more design contests coming in the near future.  Or maybe just PM or e-mail the designs to Coinographic then they can post the designs that they like in a vote thread.  Otherwise, I'd recommend just picking whichever ones he likes best and making the final decision that way.

+1 Received bounty. Would submit again. 5 stars. Thanks Coinographic.

Sorry all, but I don't think giving more weight to designer votes would solve anything. It would make the problem worse. The most glaring issue would be having one designer use multiple accounts and submit a bunch of crap and then vote for the best design of his alts. The other obvious issue would be back room deals among other designers who are already in a clique. I think this would make the vote less fair in the end. Back to square one.

Vote manipulation is hard to solve. I think account dates and post counts are one solution, but this too can create problems if only a small segment of one community is voting. Maybe opening the competition up to more communities (even non bitcoin communities) and then  randomly selecting which community votes for which designs or combine all the designs for one vote would help average the vote out somewhat and make any manipulation more obvious. Of course this would also likely bring in more designs and make the competition harder to win. Which is a bad for all of the us, but good for the competition.Grin  It would probably be a big headache for coinographic and create extra work, but it would be more fair and create more publicity for their business. If you weigh votes I think coinographic staff and customers who previously bought coins from them should have the most weight in the end.

But that is just my two cents.

I think Mr Bau's coin design will turn out fine and look great. Can't wait to see the final product.

Your link points to a coin design that was posted today, so maybe they stole bonksnp2's design, not the other way around?

The Heck is this?!

Poly-coin team literally used the SILVER WALLETS design and changed the text
See the original: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=525756.0;topicseen
Then they used a Casascius v1 hologram and altered the bottom portion a bit.
Amateurs...

others that have a B on a world map.

It looks like a render but nonetheless looks amazing.
All Coinographics coins to date look extremely impressive. I doubt this one will be any different.
Great design!

This image was actually an unfinished image that was tweeted by mistake.  Gives you all a sneak peek but the finished one is much more polished.  We should have this coin ready to be announced on monday and production will also start on monday next week as well

Thank you

The coin looks amazing.  Your website mentions other gold and silver Bitcoins as well.  Will they have the same design?

the 2 ounce silver (2BTC) will have the same design as the 2 ounce gold (5BTC)

The 1 ounce silver (1BTC) will have the same design as the 1 ounce gold (1BTC)

the 0.10 and 0.50 coins will have different designs as designed by the community


Hope that helps
