And some people want one or two.
Finally! A 100-kg Canadian gold coin
The Royal Canadian Mint has produced the world's first 100-kilogram gold coin with a face value of $1 million. And they're for sale.
Why did it do this? "Because we can," the mint said on its website.b
The coin is the size of a "very thick pizza" ? 50 centimetres wide and three centimetres thick ? and is .99999 pure.
It was originally meant to be a one-off novelty item to help promote the other gold coin the mint unveiled Thursday ? a new line of one-ounce Maple Leaf bullion coins that will have a face value of $200.
