Skycoin Physical Coins
Welcome Skycoin believers to our first Kickstarter campaign. We are four crypto enthusiasts with an entrepreneurial mindset and a love for collectable coins.
Our team discovered Skycoin in early 2017, a unique and ambitious cryptocurrency project that has been in development since Bitcoin was launched to the public. Skycoin has since grown a large and active community of believers which is growing day by day.
The four of us are deeply involved in Skycoin and we've always felt the need to not just own the virtual cryptocurrency, but also have something physical to show our devotion to the project. Through our love for collectable coins, the idea of creating a physical Skycoin Collectable Coin was born.
We reached out to the Skycoin developer team and they were as excited as us! Thus with their support, we are releasing a limited collection of physical Skycoin collectable coins for the Skycoin community. To thank the Skycoin developers for their support, each of them will receive their own coin.
The Physical Skycoin Coin is a great extension of your cryptocurrency portfolio and gives you the feeling of being closely attached to your favourite cryptocurrency project.
And to be honest: what better way to start a conversation than your own favourite cryptocurrency in physical form!
We started a channel on Telegram to answer everyone's questions. If you would like to join this chat please follow the link: https://t.me/PhysicalSkycoins
More information about Skycoin and all its innovations can be found on their recently renewed website: https://www.skycoin.net/

Non-precious metal coins will be 5.08 cm (2 Inches) in diameter, 3.5 mm (0.14 Inches) thick, and will weigh around 64 grams (2.27 ounces). The image below shows a size comparison of our 2 Inches Collectable Coin compared to the 1 euro coin and half a dollar coin.
Fine Silver (99.9 %) coins will be the same size as a Silver Maple leaf and weigh 31.1 grams (1 troy ounce).
Pure 24 karat Gold (99.9 %) coins will be the same size as a Gold Krugerrand and weigh 31.1 grams (1 troy ounce).
We offer three kinds of collectable coins:
- Zinc (37%) & Copper (63%) with 18 Karat gold plating to give it that smooth mirror effect.
- Fine Silver (99.9% pure Silver)
- 24 Karat Gold (99.9 % pure Gold)
We have enabled a range of pledges to fit your needs.
Fine Silver and 24 Karat Gold coins are provided with the correct certificate to verify its authenticity. they come in a plastic coin capsule and a wooden coin box to protect it from scratches.
The 18 karat Gold plated Skycoin collectable coins will be limited at 2500. Our pure Fine Silver coins will be limited to a 100 pieces. And our 24 karat pure Gold coins will be limited to 20 pieces.
Because we did not want to spoil the design of our collectable coins with numbering, we will be giving a unique code to each coin. You will receive a certificate for each coin in your order that can be consulted with our database upon your request. If in any case, you wish to trade the coin, your buyer(s) will know exactly which numbered coin(s) they bought.
Tribute to the Skycoin Obelisk Consensus Algorithm
A beautiful custom-made crystal glass Obelisk for the true Skycoin believer! The Obelisk is 30 cm (11.81 inches) high and 6 cm (2.36 inches) thick. The base of the Obelisk holds a small plaque with a special engraved text.
Here we have a special stretch goal. If more then 10 pieces are sold, the coin will be embedded inside the top of the obelisk. If this goal is not reached the coin will be laser printed inside the obelisk. Either way, it is going to be legendary!
Below is a picture to give you an idea of how the laser imprint will look, and the size of the Obelisk itself.
All American orders will be shipped with priority shipping from the United States in a bubble wrapped protective envelope or box. All European orders will be shipped with priority shipping from Belgium.
Fine Silver and 24 Karat Gold coins are fully insured requiring an adult signature upon delivery. Your order is not your liability until the parcel is signed for and taken into your physical possession. There will be a track and trace for each of these precious metal orders so you know where your package is at any given time.
The Obelisk will be fully insured and comes with a track and trace as well. To make sure it arrives in one piece we bubble wrap it, use a triple wall box and fill the empty spaces with foam peanuts.

Risks and challenges
We are in direct contact with the minting factory for the non-precious metal coins. This company has over 15+ years of experience in minting coins with intricate details and based on the prior products they produced we are certain they can deliver a quality product. A sample has been ordered and is on its way. We will be giving some preview pictures upon arrival (approximately the 14th of April).
For the precious metal coins, we are working directly with a minting company from Antwerp that has the necessary certifications to produce legitimate gold and silver coins, along with the proper certificate. Based on their previous work they are able to deliver a top quality product.
Regarding our Obelisk tribute, we are in direct contact with the producer of the crystal glass and will be personally overlooking the process of embedding the coin or the design of the laser engravement.
The producers have been contacted and are ready to start. Our logistics are all planned out. The biggest risk we face is not getting funded. So please share this Kickstarter with your friends and other Skycoin believers so we can reach the necessary funds and all pledgers can receive their unique Skycoin Collectable Coins!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
