'Circulating?'

I think 'circulating' is not exactly the right word for a commemorative limited-issue coin.

Really.

Not a criticism of you - you just lifted their words. But a coin in circulation is one that gets traded for goods and services, hence circulates amongst people. A coin that someone buys to hold as a collectible doesn't do that.

So they'll go on sale next week, but they won't likely circulate unless someone says, 'man what did I buy this ugly piece of shit for?' ;-) and sells it to somebody else.

Of course I'm entirely missing the point of your posting. I can't really think of anything to say about a QR code on a coin, except that it seems kind of tacky.

Links to a "surprise"? You

Links to a "surprise"?

You are in possession of money that was stolen from someone 35 transactions ago, and we're confiscating it!  Surprise!
