What's a Casascius coin? - CoinDesk

Lealana Funded Litecoin

I was about to put one of these coins onto Ebay and wondered if anyone would be interested here before I do?
I live in the UK but can provide proof of ownership in whatever way you would prefer and send nearly anywhere in the world. Definitely not Australia though! I had to send a casascius Bitcoin there a while ago and ended up delivering the bloody thing by hand!!
Anyway, will wait to see if anyone is interested before Ebay. Will send photos by private message if requested.
The last one sold on Ebay for £638 on 28th Jan. The price that day was £137. Open to offers.
Selling due to imminent baby arrival!
Edit: now listed on Ebay where you'll be able to see pictures and check my Ebay feedback

Added some brief information about the coins in italics
For Sale:
MicroSoul's original coins were minted in the UK. Low mintage, but not sure off the top of my head what the numbers were. They released a couple series and some in .999 fine silver.
These coins came from Crypto Imperator in Spain. They have released these 10,000 Dogecoins made of brass- total mintage of 500, and did a limited run of only 25 coins in .999 fine silver containing it's face value of 100,000 Dogecoins, and are currently working on a run of only 10 .999 fine gold 1,000,000 Dogecoins. There are 5 left of 10, check here for more info. They also made 1 physical Bitcoin, all are very finely made beautiful coins. CI's coins are in no way related to the Silver bullion Dogecoin coins you may have seen.
bhcoins come from a pair in Argentina. They have released 4 different series in the past few years. These coins are from Series 3 and a mintage of only 200, with the first 20 reserved by the creators.
Cryptolator is based in Canada but minted at the esteemed Northwest Territorial Mint in Washington state. Their only design so far was the Unchained Series, minted in .999 fine silver, copper, Merlin Gold, antique copper, and antique brass. These copper coins listed are from a limited mintage of 500. The the coin is minted with proof-like quality and features the "Unchained Series" design, according to the maker: "The artist's design on the face of the coin represents us breaking free from the "chains that bind us" to the banks. In front of the bank, there is a pig and a dog sitting (the pig representing a banker & the dog a businessman), and the people running from the collapsing bank are considered as the sheep that are freeing themselves. This is a reference to the Pink Floyd album, Animals. The crying eye at the top of the bank is the Illuminati eye that is now closed and crying, the sad "pig" bankers who have lost from the liberating peer-to-peer money system that is Bitcoin."
Lealana is based in Hawaii but these coins were minted at the Northwest Territorial mint in Washington state. They are most known for their Lealana Litecoins, which were minted in silver and early followers after the trailblazing Casascius Bitcoins
These Lealana coins are the "Buyer Funded" model, and do not contain or come with any digital Bitcoin value, but any amount of Bitcoin can be loaded onto them for cold storage. They have a unique Bitcoin address assigned to them with private key inside. In this case the denomination or face value of 0.1 Bitcoin is just a suggestion; any amount of BTC can be sent to the coins
All coins are in mint condition (have never been handled) or the condition they were in coming from their maker. Not really in any hurry to sell these coins and don't need the money, so probably won't come down a ton on price, but can negotiate discounts if buying a few. I feel like these prices are pretty fair based off of current and past sales of similar coins.

About Physical Bitcoins/other cryptos:
In 2011 a man named Mike Caldwell, an avid supporter of cryptography and Bitcoin, had an idea to mint physical coins that could represent digital Bitcoin value in a more conventional way, so that more people would be able to conceptualize and understand this new digital cryptocurrency technology. He came up with a way to mint a physical coin that actually contained the digital Bitcoin value it represented. On one side of the coin, he had a recessed groove stamped into it. He then securely and safely generated new Bitcoin address public & private keys, printing the private keys (needed to spend the funds) and placing them in the recessed groove. He then had complex & layered tamper-evident holograms created to cover the private key, which served 2 purposes: 1- these complex holograms made it harder to ever create a believable counterfeit of his coins, and 2- when the holograms were peeled back exposing the private key needed to spend the funds, it left a honeycomb pattern behind, which would instantly tell someone considering buying one on the 2nd market whether the coin still contained its valuable BTC funds, or if it had been spent. He called his coins Casascius physical Bitcoins, and they proved to be very popular, with several different denominations and Series released over a couple years' time. Today these coins are highly valued & sought after collectors' items. Many individuals, groups, and companies followed suit in the years that followed, designing and minting their own physical crypto coins. And that's where we are today with these coins I have for sale. :) I tried my best to explain how physical Bitcoins work in a limited space, but it is hard to fully summarize such a topic in so few words, so if you have any questions just ask!
