Made-to-order through a local mint, the Casascius gold coins were offered for about 200 USD above the gold spot price in addition to the buyer supplying the required 1,000 BTC, technically making them ‘BF’ instead of ‘PF’ coins.

The total number of coins produced and sold is known to be at least seven, of which two or more have been redeemed.

The series 2 coin features ‘laser rimming’ as an additional safeguard, and the hologram is  engraved with ‘1000 BTC’ to signal
that it is funded.
