Happy Bitcoin Pizza Day – 2016!

I hereby wish everybody a happy Bitcoin Pizza Day! On this day we remember laszlo purchasing two pizza’s for 10.000BTC. Pictures of the purchased pizza can be found on archive.org.

I hereby also want to show off one of the commemorative coins that were made for this day. I own one of the rare “Bitcoin Specie – Pizza Day Commemorative” coins (informational post about Bitcoin Specie will be made soon) and I’m very fond of it.

Bullion Not Bits

Provident Metals logo

The Silver Shield BitCon was sent to me by my buddy of mine, hybridsole, but it wasn’t the only item he sent me, oh no. He included a few goodies as well and the first one is a “Bullion Not Bits“-coin, which is another anti-bitcoin bullion, just like the Silver Shield Bitcon. This coin is made by Provident Metals.

Silver Shield BitCon

Today I received a fascinating coin, made by SD Bullion. It has a pretty long name, “Silver Shield BitCon 1 oz Silver Bullion Round” and it was used by some silver bugs to criticize Bitcoin.

MicroSoul – Lucky coin

My latest purchase is a funny little coin from MicroSoul, which is a company owned by gravitate.

This coin is a Lucky coin and in every round someone will win 1 Bitcoin! Thing is, you don’t know if you hit it until you peel off the hologram and import the private key, which will destroy the coin as a whole. Decision, decisions….

UPDATE (12-03-2016): My coin is, sadly, not a winner. Coin number #4.4 (owned by Operatr) has won as stated in this post.

For more information about this, see the official Lucky coin thread on Bitcointalk.

Bitcoin Lapel Pins

Another score from the European Bitcoin Convention were a lot of Bitcoin Lapel Pins. I used to have a lot of these, but I’ve been giving away a lot of them lately (mostly to people that buy items from me, in the rare case that I sell something).

I got these at the European Bitcoin Convention in 2013 (organized by Moe Levin) , which were given away for free by HardBTC (sadly their stock is quite disappointing right now). They also supplied me with a lot of Aluminium coins made by Casascius.

Pictures will be added soonTM!


Casascius – Aluminium Coins

Casascius - Aluminium Coins

Well, my second Physical Cryptocurrency items were a few Aluminium coins made by the famous Casascius.

I got these at the European Bitcoin Convention in 2013 (organized by Moe Levin) , which were given away for free by HardBTC (sadly their stock is quite disappointing right now). They also supplied me with a lot of Bitcoin related pins.

Pictures will be added soonTM!

Bitcoin Specie – Whitepaper 5th Anniversary

This coin is the first coin I really fell in love with. It’s a special edition Bitcoin Specie, specially stamped to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Satoshi Whitepaper.

I bought them from NewLiberty (JVP on Twitter) during the European Bitcoin Convention. This person created the “New Liberty Dollar” and is a very friendly fellow with an unique view on the world. If you ever have the chance to talk to him, please do so!

ASICMiner Block Erupter

ASICMiner Block Erupter

This time the item I received is a Block Erupter, which was already outdated when I got it. I won this item in a raffle on Bitcointalk, which was a very pleasant surprise.

Anyway, not much to say about these little things. I kept it running for a little while on my laptop, but it really really wasn’t worth my time (and energy), so it has been downgraded to be a collectors item.

Bit-Card Paper Wallet

Bit-Card logo

This is the first purchase I ever made that can be described as Physical Cryptocurrency and is considered a Paper Wallet.
For more information about Paper Wallets checkout this article in the Bitcoin Wiki!

This item was made by a Germany company that still has a live website, but it doesn’t seem to be active anymore, which is a shame.

Pictures will be added soonTM!
