This is the first bitcoin themed
coin to be produced and sold.
Released on June 28th, 2011, these
were sold out over a month before
the first Casascius coins went
on sale. Being sold for 1.50 GBP
each with a minimum order of 10,
supply ran out in two months. Due
to the initial cheapness of these
coins, it is likely that many were
damaged by mishandling and/or
misplaced over the years. As such,
the number of these coins in good
condition is likely very small, and
one coming onto the market is a
rare event.
