The imagery at the center of this coin represents
Litecoin mining, security, speed (as compared to
Bitcoin), and global applicability. The original intent
was to release three distinct versions of the coin: an
‘Economy’, ‘Executive’, and even ‘Chocolate’. While the
first would be made cheaply, the second was to be made
to the highest standards. The chocolate coins were a
‘fun’ addition, and used as a promotion. Due to a lack of
demand, the ‘Executive’ version never materialized. A
batch of 4,000 coins were produced, 850 of which were
designated as ‘Special First Edition’ coins. These ‘SFE’
coins feature a ‘window’ in the hologram (pictured
above), whereas the remaining 3,150 have no such
window. The SFE coins were meant to be funded with 1
LTC prior to shipment, but the idea was abandoned due
to the publicized legal complications faced by Casascius.
The other coins (without hologram windows) were
never meant to be pre-funded.
