Largest Gold Coin to Be Auctioned

Guiness Book of Records Largest Gold coinOn June 25, 2010, the world’s largest gold coin will be auctioned off to a really wealthy bidder. Minted in 2007, the Canadian Maple Leaf weighs 220 pounds and 20 inches wide, and is heavy enough that two men cannot pick it up. Yikes!

The coolest tidbit about the coin is the fact is is made of the purest gold on earth, roughly 99.99% pure. Currently face valued at $1 Million, experts believe it will fetch the current gold rate. So that means since gold is currently priced at $1256/ounce, the coin could go for as much as $4.42 Million.

Any takers out there in Minnesota?

Wow, a good auction for somebody who can afford this huge coin, Jennifer.

Anyway, AMAZING job on the blog, it looks much cleaner and is so much easier to navigate. This blog now definitely says ‘luxury’ from the first moment a visitor comes on the site.
