The design captured what I was looking for: some coins and a sense of movement. That was turned into an elegant icon, colored appropriately and matched with a modern font. The design is simple yet instructive and memorable.

I think I'd like to have arrows showing that the platform is for trades: A member swaps his/her private key and associated cryptocurrency for another member's private key. Also numismatics is involved, which means evaluating the mint state of the CC, how it was minted/created, and what makes it interesting and collectable.
One of the goals of collecting real world currency that might be applied to collecting crypto currencies is circulation state. It is difficult to get close to mint state as mining of popular currencies is performed in pools and the block reward is split across multiple addresses. So the amounts paid to miners are "circulated" at least once in the physical coin sense. But some mining pools have bonuses for the winning miner, and new mining pools are formed with incentives for miners who join early. Both of those might generate collector interest. Mining pools are somewhat analogous to mint marks on coins and collecting a broad set of mint marks may be of interest if they can all be collected on a single private key.
The ultimate value in a mint state crypto coin would come from a solo miner who gets lucky. While this is not practical with Bitcoin, there is a very large and growing variety of currencies that can be mined. Early currency miners and buyers have both price risk and longevity risk. These risks can be balanced with better rewards using tradable private keys with Virtual Coin Club. If a currency has long term success then there will be more collectors for the early mintages when few people cared about the currency.
