Presenting the 2014 Casascius St. Petersburg Bitcoin Bowl coin, to be used for the coin toss at kickoff!

This 1-ounce limited-edition fine silver medallion commemorates the first professional sporting event to take place under the banner of Bitcoin. It combines the face of the classic Casascius® physical bitcoin with the St. Petersburg Bitcoin Bowl logo on the reverse. Adorned with gold plating on the polished rim, the Bitcoin B, and the bowl logo, this is the only coin to be released by Casascius in the 2014 calendar year. This collectible coin does not contain any private key or digital Bitcoin value.

It comes shipped in a standard openable slab.





Buy now!  As advertised in Bowl Merchandise section on StPetersburgBowl.com.  Direct link to coin: https://www.strydeathletic.com/shop/bitcoin-bowl/bitcoin-coin/

Very nice initiative and the coins looks absolutely great.

The site says there are 10 in stock, does that mean only 10 have ever been made?

I made 2000.  Many of them won't be available on the market, Santa Claus got first dibs. Wink

Still fairly limited run Smiley

Just ordered mine, used a coupon code for 10% off, so US$90 for that amazing coin is a good deal Wink

I'm working with them on the quantity to remedy the "out of stock" condition.

They probably didn't anticipate selling out that fast.  Most football toss coins aren't bitcoins and don't sell that fast Smiley

Very nice looking coin! Would go well with my Gold/Silver 1 BTC.

Is there any opportunity for international orders?

Does their site (assuming not out of stock) not permit them?  (I haven't gone thru the process)

Ah, I've been waiting for this since I happened to stumble across your new blog post a month or so ago- it looks great though! Really cool that they let you design the coin toss coin- it's only fitting to have the original maker of physical Bitcoins make the coin for the first bowl game sponsored by Bitcoin (BitPay)!       (I also gotta give props to BitPay for letting them call it the "Bitcoin Bowl" instead of the BitPay Bowl. Getting the word out about Bitcoin benefits BitPay just as much if not more in the long run!)
 
Unfortunately the Christmas season has me maxed out on funds- hopefully there will be one or 2 left in another week or so! Will check back ASAP!

These are awesome. Tried buying with bitcoin and bitpay but kept getting an error. Had to use card instead. Just me? Would like to buy a few more paying with BTC.

"Error creating BitPay invoice. Please try again or try another payment method."
