What is the difference between limited and special edition?

This is the special edition bitcoin. The picture is from my nephew.

I bought a physical bitcoin and sent it to my nephew as a gift. Her mom said it's limited. I said it's not. He can always load it with more funds, and it's unlimited, not limited. It appears she's not pertaining to adding more funds/bitcoin/euro, but she's pertaining to limited edition. I said it's special edition, not limited, but I can't fully explain the difference.

Exactly what @KityCat said, limited is made in a limited number of pieces and every piece should be numbered.

My nephew mistook the special edition for limited.

@LadyDuck yes, that's why I corrected him. He'll think it's limited and maybe tell his friends about it. He's so happy having received such gift.

@wittynet "Limited" is usually more praised by collectors.

Oh! It explains why it has red color aside from gold. All their coins are plain gold plated.

Limited edition would be , there is only a few number of that product manufactures while special edition would be it's a special version of a certain product . Forgive me for that's how much I know

Bitcoin being a crypto currency is trying to compete with fiat currency. Fiat currency is issued by the government while crypto currency is created by the network it works on. As long as it is not used by everyone it would remain rare.

@piyushbhatia1 I believe someday, fiat will be totally phased out and replaced with digital currencies like bitcoin.

This is a cool item, I've never seen it before! How is that supposed to work? If you can add more funds does that mean it's actually a wallet?
