Description

This bitcoin ‘penny’ is a play on
the real US 1 cent coin, being of
similar size and material. The
round proclaims ‘In Code We
Trust’, in contrast with the ‘In
God We Trust’ declaration on US
currency. The meaning of this
can be taken further, to symbolize
how digital currencies operate
on real objective mathematic
principles (code) as opposed to the
control of a ‘higher power’ such as a
government or central bank (God).
Furthermore, ‘E Pluribus Unum’ is
replaced with ‘E-Currency Unum’.
Notably, the ‘B’ on this coin is
a different font than usual on
physical Bitcoins.
