ELECTRUM-G, A Tangible Coin Actualization Schema: Patents for Casting, Forensics and Trade Options

Efi Tsiatsiou, Athanasios Zisopoulos, Konstantinos Spinthiropoulos, Panagiotis Georganakis


Our interdisciplinary research concluded with a new member of the ancient Electrum family of golden coins: the ELECTRUM-G coin. It is golden representing an actual value with metal abnormalities to give a universal traceable RID and a modern engravement and other forgery fighting attributes and associated electronics. Other ELECTRUM-G characteristics are ; A tangible item with the form of a coin or sphere; there is a coin engravement with a QR code pointing the Electrum Ecosystem (www.electrum.gr). Four different patents are prepared for the project needs: a unique QR code stamping; a RID code casting; a two-layer gold foundry with RID intermediate layer; and a professional electronics simple spectrometer to read and report the RID code. Two Electrum narrative examples are given for ELECTRUM-G use and forensics, a nouvelle with the happy Electrum traveler and the lyrics of a song defining the “thin line between love and hate”. Finally, as inspired scientists we reverse the ELECTRUM Universe with an old story of “Stop RFID” and the beast (665+1) endangerment. Our research and product headlines faced also two contradictory intra-co-operating design aspects: the personal interest of the Electrum-G coin owner and the Public interest of civil and national security.
