A Lealana Bitcoin, the first piece of physical cryptocurrency offered in a major live auction, is set to cross the block this month. The piece will be offered in Stack’s Bowers Galleries’ November 2021 Showcase Auction.

Graded SP-70 by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), it is the first Bitcoin from the Lealana series to be certified by that service. It features an intrinsic face value, or “peel value,” of 0.1 Bitcoin (BTC), equivalent to roughly USD $6,500 at the time of publishing.
