The people behind Silver Wallets haven’t been idle, and are now on their third major design. Their original Silver Wallets design was a very polished, high-quality inaugural offering, but the new one is even more impressive.
With a beautiful proof finish, this is a lovely ounce of silver to start with, but on top of that they’ve added gold plating on the “B” and around the rim. The result is striking.
As with the previous designs, this is a kit for making your own physical bitcoin collectible. The shallow half-inch square recess on the back allows you space to place your own private key, and the coin comes with 3 holograms for sealing it in place — either backups if you make a mistake, or replacements in case you choose to redeem the coin at some point and then re-assemble it. No one has control over the key but you, so it’s as secure as the precautions you take.
The coin comes in its own round plastic case, but an optional slab-style case is also provided, which would be handy for displaying the public address along with the coin.
These are beautiful pieces, and we look forward to seeing more in the series.
