About Us

One day in the not so distant past a man became fascinated by bitcoin.

So fascinated he decided to buy one for each of his young children.

He went to the exchanges, but wasn’t convinced by their security.

He bought some physical bitcoins, but felt his children deserved better.

Finally he resolved to make his own. And so he created TGBEX Bitcoins.


Our Ethos

We believe in bitcoin. And we’d love to help the world believe in bitcoin.

That’s why we make premium quality physical bitcoins:

100% designed, manufactured and finished in The Isle of Man and GB;

100% securely, with processes and controls overseeing our manufacturing.

We do this to give our customers 100% peace of mind. See for yourself.


An Ideal Base

TGBEXIoMTGBEX is headquartered in the Isle of Man, which is fast becoming the world’s leading jurisdiction for bitcoin businesses.

We firmly believe the island’s progressive approach to cryptocurrency regulation and oversight has strong precedent in its success as an established financial and e-gaming centre. This provides the industry a level of certainty and support which will help establish this UK crown dependency as a global hub for digital currency enterprises.

As an active member of the Manx Digital Currency Association, we are fully committed to working with both local government and fellow bitcoin companies to assist in the growth of bitcoin on the island.
