Looks interesting. What is the current equivalent price in Bitcoin of a generic unfunded bill?

EDIT: Googled currency conversion. So if I wanted to buy a 100 millibit bill, I would have to send you 100 millibits plus the equivalent of CHF 10 at the time of order?

CHF 10 currently equals approx. 10 USD for anyone else wondering.

On the ordering page: https://www.bitcoinsuisse.ch/Site/CertificatesOrder, try to make an order.
You will then be directed to a confirmation page with a complete breakdown of the cost of your order, in the preferred currency and in Bitcoin.
NB. Be sure to select 'Bitcoin in 'Pay Certificates/Shipping via' ...

No order is binding or will be processed, until confirming it on the confirmation page - and clicking the confirmation link in the generated order email.

Currently at 345 USD/BTC, CHF 10 comes to some 0.03 BTC

EDIT:
>>So if I wanted to buy a 100 millibit bill, I would have to send you 100 millibits plus the equivalent of CHF 10 at the time of order?

Correct. Plus shipping. So if not based in Europe, perhaps order a few or order with some interested friends, to keep shipping costs down.

Going to order a generic one now to give it a try. Had to switch to the laptop; when ordering on iphone, it semi-glitched when clicking confirm order on the email confirmation page.

International shipping doesn't seem bad at around $6 USD for a generic certificate, unless I'm missing something.

Thank you - we will look into that.

>>International shipping doesn't seem bad at around $6 USD for a generic certificate, unless I'm missing something.

All prices and conditions are available in the product description: https://www.bitcoinsuisse.ch/Site/data/BTCS_BitcoinCertificates_EN.pdf. Shipping is also quoted in your order, pre confirmation.
Yes - it is around USD 6 for a ordinary letter shipping, and twice that for a registered letter, and we can only provide replacement of lost shipments on the latter. We find these prices rather expensive when ordering just a single certificate, and regret this costs for our non Swiss customers.

If in a Bitcoin hostile jurisdiction, ask for shipping w/o our company name and logo on the letter.

Bought and confirmed via email 1 generic quantity Bitcoin certificate, I'm excited to check it out! Just waiting for the follow-up email with payment instructions to proceed. I will report back here when I receive it to let everyone know how it is. Was really wanting to order an 100 mBit certificate but don't have the extra BTC at the moment to send the 0.10 + product & shipping costs right now.

Thank you!
We do not process orders on Sundays, but you will have your BTC invoice Monday morning - and we will ship immidiately after payment.

>> I will report back here when I receive it to let everyone know how it is.

We would be greateful if you do. So far, feedback from customers have been very positive. We will send along a demo certificate (marked "demo" - taken from those bills which failed quality control) which you can open. Opening a certificate intentionally destroys it, so this way you get a chance to see the inside, as well as the outside, without opening/destroying your own.
We will add a small amount of BTC to the demo certificate for you to sweep :-)

>>Was really wanting to order an 100 mBit certificate

Only 33 % are sold - they should be available for another two or three months into the future. We will not produce any more certificates of series #1 - but we do not rule out a series # 2, with a different design.

Thank you! Thank you all for the overwhelming interest! We'll process & ship your orders this Monday.
We'll look forward to your feedback once you receive your shipments. Rest assured - it is a high quality Swiss product! We'll be adding some demo certificates to some of the orders which can be opened & investigated.

For those who wonder (and in response to some emails):
The PKey is sandwiched between two layers of foil, behind the indicated and semi-perforated PKey field on the certificate, which must first be ripped open. It is covered by scratch-off covering, similar to a lottery ticket - and displayed both as a QR code and in WIF-format, ready for import/sweep by any bitcoin client / online wallet.

Just received an invoice for my order from BitcoinSuisseAG, and paid. Really looking forward to receiving it and checking it out, it looked great from what I saw. And you can't argue with the fact that the Swiss are known for their secure money handling skills.  Wink

Order total was 0.04878 BTC (at current BTC prices) for 1 non-denominated Bitcoin certificate shipped internationally, not a bad total price at all in my opinion. I will definitely let you guys know how it is when I get it.

BitcoinSuisseAG- Could you confirm that you received my updated shipping details and that I paid my order in full?

Also, I would recommend posting some pictures of the certificates in your Original Post, as they look very nice and that may gather more interest from people checking out your thread. Like this (Hit the quote post button to see or click the little "picture" button above the text area):

Also, read this last night and forgot to say thank you! It would be great to be able to look at the inner workings without having to destroy mine! I only wish all the makers of physical crypto coins could do this as well!  Cheesy

Now I am very excited to get my order!

No - you likely sent it directly to one of our employees, which was not the person writing right now. And since it is 02:00am here i the Alps, this person is sleeping. Use info@bitcoinsuisse.ch for company wide reach around the clock.

>>and that I paid my order in full?

Yes - that we can confirm!

>>Also, read this last night and forgot to say thank you!

Our pleasure!

>>Also, I would recommend posting some pictures

An excellent suggestion. Done! Thank you.

>>can't argue with the fact that the Swiss are known for their secure money handling skills.

Brokerage, Consulting & Wealth management outside the traditional banking/financial system is core business focus. Operating a pan-Swiss BTC ATM network is what we are perhaps most known for.
The Certificates are thus not our core business, but nevertheless they are produced with proper Swiss care and quality standards. Yes - we are extremely careful in all matters regarding privacy and security, client funds, customer service and quality control, continuing the Swiss tradition.

While trivial information for most Bitcoin users, we have written this HowTo for our certificates: https://www.bitcoinsuisse.ch/data/CertificateHowTo.pdf

Might prove useful, even for Bitcoin enthusiasts, if passing along the Certificates as presents to non-BTC-savvy friends and family.

We hear that the first BitcoinTalk client has now received his certificates! We hope for a review :-)

And we hear that 4 certificates were used as partial payment in Colombo, Sri Lanka - for a large furniture deal.

^ Great news on both parts, Congratulations!

It wasn't me, but that means mine should be here any day now! I can't wait to receive it and check out the "test" certificate also! I will definitely post a picture and review when I have the chance and time. I have also purchased several physical bitcoins and other cryptos recently, and I can't wait to add this cool BTC certificate to that collection! I'm somewhat surprised at the low BTCtalk activity so far, but I think that will definitely grow overtime as you become more trusted and people start seeing/receiving more product. I for one will definitely be buying a funded certificate (I ordered a non-denominational "empty" certificate) in the very near future! I think these would probably be great for Christmas presents for getting friends and family into Bitcoin as well.

On a side note- I must say the communication/customer service during the ordering process was top notch so far; always a great thing.

Arrived in good packing with a letter to confirm proof of purchase. I will need to call on Monday to have the two 100 mBTC certificates verified and loaded. Here are a few pictures including a Demo certificate I opened. These are very high quality. You can see the different security features in the pictures. I would feel more secure accepting one of these certificates than one of the more common peel off hologram stickers. I plan to order a few of the 500 mBTC and 1BTC certificates next, but I will need to save up for the 10BTC Tongue.
