Here we have another addition to the Golden Treasures category. A limited run Gold Plated Pentax LX SLR camera. Up until the 1990s, the SLR camera was the most advanced photographic preview system available. With gold climbing to all time record highs, this 18k gold-plated camera is perfect for anyone who likes a little extra flash! Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.
I love my iPad and I really like gold, but I don’t know if I could pull off running around with one of these. Once again for the person who just has to have that extra flair. Here we have a Solid Gold iPad with diamond encrusted Apple logo. This isn’t just gold plating here, the rear and screen surround are made from a single piece of solid 22kt gold, weighing an immense 2,100 grams. This baby will set you back about $190,000, of course you better order soon the way gold has been climbing. Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.
Well I’ve posted on a 24kt gold Macbook Pro, why not a 24kt Gold-Plated BBQ Grill. Just when stainless was getting boring, here comes a grill that will set you back a hot $164,000. You can grill some serious stuff on this Beef Eater Signature SL-5 Burner, which also comes with an additional integrated side wok burner delivering a massive total power of 123,904 BTU, this is one very serious barbecue with all the power you’ll ever need.

All right, It’s Friday and it’s getting hot out. Time for a Tequila Goldsicle. This precious metal pop with a punch is filled with 24 carat gold flakes and sells for a cool grand at the Marquis Los Cabos in Baja California, Mexico. As you would expect from a frozen treat of this stature, it can be delivered to you poolside. It is made with Clase Azul Ultra tequila, which is self-proclaimed to be the “finest tequila ever produced.” I have never tried it myself, and costing around $2000 a bottle, it’s not likely I will in the near future.

SOLD! Looks like the name Cartier does add value. This Money clip sold for $3900. Actual precious metal value, about $1500. It goes to show you that jewelers are most definitely artists. I’m sure the proud new owner will enjoy! Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.
This Classic Vintage Cartier Money Clip is listed on eBay. A 1927 Saint Gaudens twenty-dollar gold coin is interned in this 18 karat gold money clip. Most coins, even though they are artistic pieces in their own right, once put into jewelry lose their numismatic value. I guess this depends on the jeweler. Cartier made this piece in the fifties, and this money clip is listed well over its precious metal value. The owner claims the retail value to be $6,300, but you can pick this up today at a bargain price of $4,490. I am no expert on vintage jewelry, so I don’t really know how what kind of deal this is. It is guaranteed to be Cartier and from the fifties, so in my book, it gets a “Cool Stuff” stamp. Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.
I have always enjoyed a quality writing instrument. While in my teens, probably for my confirmation, I received a set of Cross Pens. I enjoyed writing with them and soon became a fan. The A.T. Cross Company was founded in 1846 in Providence, Rhode Island. This family of jewelers started making gold and silver pen casings. The company developed many innovative new writing instruments, including forerunners of the modern mechanical pencils, and the earliest stylographic pens. The Cross pen became a “must-have” accessory for the rising professional during the 1970s and 1980s. Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.
My time in Reno has been wonderful. I finally made it to a place I have just always seemed to miss. I am a former Delorean owner and the National Automobile Museum in Reno just happens to have one of only three 24 karat gold plated Deloreans. So needless to say I was just a little bit excited. The gold dmc-12 was in the lobby and was the perfect car to welcome me to the museum. This place is a car enthusiasts dream. It starts off with the first car made in North America and ends with The Thomson Flyer, the actual car that won the 1908 New York to Paris automobile race. Keep in mind there weren’t many roads in 1908. Most of the vehicles were donated by William F.Harrah, who was a major player in the Nevada casino world. If you love cars and are in Reno, this is a must see! Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.
