The world has seen the first silver proof coin representing a bitcoin currency and loaded with 0.01 BTC! The idea of the Sol Noctis (Latin for "Nighttime Sun") series was to mark the point where two worlds meet: traditional numismatics and a payment system of the future, and so to push the limits of both of them. The first coin of the series - The Binary Eagle - is struck of 1 oz pure silver .999. The mintage is limited to 2009 pieces.
Each coin is embellished with a majestic eagle, a symbol of the freedom the bitcoin technology provides. Bitcoin value is attached to the coin by applying a sticker with bitcoin wallet keys printed on it, and protected by a holographic image.
A special technique of E-Beam Nanogram™ was applied to create a hologram with maximum protection against counterfeit. Thanks to it, four levels of security features are embossed into the holographic foil with a resolution of 550,000 dpi. A private key, which is needed to redeem the face value, is located under the coin’s protective holographic layer. It is automatically printed and is not stored by the manufacturing company, which means only the owner of the Sol Noctis coin has access to it and thus can realize the face value of the coin at any time.
