The Casascius 1oz 10BTC Silver Round (w/ Gold B)

Do you have pictures of silver 10 btc gold plated? Cannot find it on your site.

Have a look at this image on the wiki, which is a clipped piece of my recent Bitcoin Magazine ad.

https://en.bitcoin.it/w/images/en/e/e1/Casascius_25btc_size_compare.jpg

Here is a reduced size version:


Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Congrats! Not that I would toot my own horn (*gasp* "Completely unlike matthew!") but given that everyone I handed a magazine to in Korea, everyone that my reps in the USA handed to etc all commented immediately on the Casascius coin, I would say that your advertisement paid off.

Hope you bought more than one spot!  Wink

I am in for next month, same ad, but with the (gold plated B) silver coin as the centerpiece rather than the gold coin.

That's a much better choice in retrospect.

I grabbed one because someone said it was a good way to show someone that bitcoins are a real representation of value.

Forgot where I saw that post.

The best way to show someone that Bitcoin is a real representation of value is to show them Bitcoin Magazine. Why would Barnes & Noble carry a magazine about a scam ponzi scheme no-value fake currency afterall?

Someone needs to hit a B&N and take a photo of it sitting in the racks... B&N is a good half hour away from me.   BTW I just bought a couple Casascius coins for gifts; this thread reminded me of 'em. Thx!

The magazine won't be in the racks of B&N until maybe September. It takes a while to process even after the contract is signed (which it is). Asking them to stock it is productive though.

barnes and noble blow me off when i ask them to carry bitcoin magazine. they say they have no control of what they  can stock.

Apparently, they can only stock what is in their system, and they dont have the mag in that system. Its different in each store i guess. I dunno, i ended up just buying a year subscription direct from the source because it was obvious they didnt want to help me. frustrating.

Sorry you experienced that. It's possible that the distributor hasn't fully added it into the systems yet. Wait about 2 weeks and try again.

Anyway, it'll be cheaper directly from us regardless.

or 5,000 Smiley

I wouldn't want a 5,000 BTC coin, unless it was 20oz of platinum.  I'd prefer the value of the metal and the value of the BTC were somewhat close to each other.  That is what is stopping me from ordering the gold coin.  I also think gold is overvalued by about 5x compared to platinum, which is why I'd snap up a 100 BTC 1oz platinum coin, or maybe even a 250 BTC 1oz platinum coin...

hey how many 1 BTC Physical Bitcoin (Original Series)  do you have left in stock?

are you getting close to the production limit you set?

I am down to only having about 1200 of the "2011" coin blanks left, so that's the hard limit.  All the series2 1BTC coins I send out now either say 2012, or they are series-2 coins that were made from the 2011 blanks (since I made lots, but those are almost gone too - only about 200 left).  I intend to use the remaining 1st series stickers in my 2012 5BTC coin, and afterwards, I have a silver-colored hologram made specifically for the 5BTC coin.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

how about 1btc on 1 oz silver

and

1 btc on 1 oz gold

those would go like crazy, when btc catches parity ...

and imagine what would happen with silver ones, once gold parity would be reached Smiley
instant collectibles, also, they should be limited to a number of dollars at the time of parity
