These coins were manufactured in China, and caused
a large amount of trouble for Microsoul. The photo
on the right (‘2014 Series 2’ in the chart) is what
Microsoul originally received 400 of from the Chinese
manufacturer, but being unsatisfied with quality, sent
back to be re-done. Microsoul was still unsatisfied,
and shipped 90 percent of the coins back for a second
time. Unfortunately, these coins were lost to customs
resulting in a loss of over 10,000 USD. It is theoretically
possible that an additional 359 unfunded coins
without holograms will surface one day.
Microsoul was hesitant about releasing these coins at
all, as the quality was questionable. However, he made
the best of his losses and sold these coins for 40 USD
each. He has confirmed them to be at least 90 percent
silver via acid tests (a common way to determine gold
or silver content using an chemical solution).
Each coin is funded and sealed with the Microsoul
Series 2 hologram. Only five coins with the Series 1
hologram (photo on the left) were made as gifts to resellers
and are very rare.
