    There are actually 4 reputable 'mints' selling these (including Casascius) and between 5 - 10 smaller more niche ones doing the same.

    Some are related to mining and some are actually dealing in 'Alt Coins' cypto-currency that is not Bitcoin.

    I wouldn't suggest buying from, but check eBay for physical Bitcoin and you'll get the point.

    On another note, I was actually one of the very last and extremely lucky ones who managed to get a 1 Bitcoin Silver coin from Casascius himself about a week before he was closed down. It's now with pcgs being graded :)

    Haha actually they rejected it first time round (guess they don't see too many of them) but hopefully I'll get it done next time round.

    More than happy to wait it out as a good grading on the coin will easily boost the value :)

    Ah balls, I want one.. or 2,

    You guys are thinking about it wrong on value, when btc is a million dollars that makes it a pretty tidy 100k coin based on a 'real value' not because it's an old coin with a good grading.

    Makes me think though how hard could it be to have something made like this? Hmmmm
