Visible Bitcoin

I would say that we handled currency notes and coins so often that without handling them, we do not feel comfortable.  It is true that credit cards and cash storage cards reduced the usage of money notes and currencies.   But to most of us, we still want to feel a coin or two.  Casascius coins are laser engraved with the Bitcoin information and are physically available.   Some of the collectible Casascius are actually in gold and silver, really a collectible item by itself.  So for those interested in Bitcoin but want to feel the physical presence of Bitcoin, do try to order one!

The Casascius Coin are uniquely designed for Bitcoin.   It is backed by real Bitcoins.   The "private key" is on a card embedded inside the coin and is protected by a tamper-evident hologram.  The hologram leaves behind a honeycomb pattern if it is peeled. If the hologram is intact, the bitcoin is good.   At the moment it is a collectible item, but I hope that as time passes more and more people will make use of the coin for transaction purposes.  Kudos to Casascius for giving us such a beautiful physical form of the Bitcoin.   Some description as well as the lovely photos above and below are being provided by Casascius Coin for illustration purposes.
