For her first-ever NFT collection, British designer Lucy Davis takes bites out of digital Euro coins. Using a creative wordplay as its name, the ‘Bit Coin’ series features coins from ten different European countries, which will be accompanied by hand-made matching physical artwork — numbered, signed, and sealed in a floating frame. Here, Davis reflects on the worlds of crypto and fiat, inflation and deflation, the machine-made with the hand-made, the digital and the physical, by merging them into a thought-provoking project.

Each 1/1 NFT animation is a spinning euro coin from different European countries all missing a ‘bite’. Collectors of each NFT will receive an identical tangible ‘Bit coin’, hand-carved, signed, and sealed in a floating frame by Lucie Davis herself. The price for each NFT is calculated at one-tenth of a Bitcoin in real-time, the moment that specific NFT was minted.
Having already sold 40/50 of her previous physical ‘Bit coin’ works (see more here) these are the final pieces of this collection — never to be made again. So, if you’re interested, you should cop this last unique physical and digital drop while you can. Time is money…
