The Bitcoin Penny™ Manhole Cover is the World's Largest Physical Bitcoin!

This world record-smashing masterpiece was an ultra top secret, special limited edition, art project originally conceived by The Bitcoin Penny Company to be the world's largest, solid metal, physical bitcoin. Abandoning all sanity in search of the perfect medium, they finally chose to create this spectacular beauty from a genuine, full-sized, custom-designed…MANHOLE COVER! Made of the strongest 100% recycled cast iron and poured in an authentic cast iron foundry, this physical bitcoin marvel is industry-rated for commercial use on actual US roadways!

Originally announced as a ninja drop in November 2017, The Bitcoin Penny Company released a limited number of only 10 Manhole Covers (serialized) + 3 factory overrun (non-serialized) pieces. They sold out quickly with TBPCo. keeping the final three pieces (#6, #9, and Factory Overrun #2) in reserve for a future special project. And that project is finally here!

This auction’s featured Manhole Cover (No.6 / TEN) is the first of only THREE pieces exclusively designed and made for the collectors at Scarce.city.

Each piece will be a unique 1/1 piece, painted and/or decorated in a true “street theme.”

Our 1st piece, titled Street Edition: Yellow Stripe (1/1) has all the road-worthy features of a genuine urban manhole cover including its yellow stripe (authentic traffic striping paint) and several random street treasures such as a lost penny (2017 Bitcoin Penny® Commemorative Coin), a wad of old chewing gum (handcrafted from fine porcelain), and a discarded bitcoin ATM receipt (printed on waterproof 8mil synthetic paper). And just for fun, all those little street treasures are affixed to magnets so the proud owner of this 1/1 art piece may arrange them however, and as many times, as he or she enjoys! Plus, the bitcoin ATM receipt will feature all the real information from the actual funding of this art piece, so it doubles as a Certificate of Authenticity!

(NOTE: The pictured ATM receipt is a prototype only. The actual ATM receipt will be printed upon funding at the end of auction.)
