with one comment


With Gold on “Sale” at the moment, ever think of “How It’s Made?”  Not so much by mother nature, but how this precious metal is forged into the product we love to buy.    The folks at the Science Channel are here to show us!

Solid Gold iPad Supreme Edition

with one comment

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.

Tequila Goldsicle

leave a comment »

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.  Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.

Update | eBay Find | Vintage Cartier Saint Gaudens Money Clip

leave a comment »

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.

eBay Find | Vintage Cartier Saint Gaudens Money Clip

with one comment

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.

24K Gold MacBook Pro

leave a comment »

This is an ultimate gift for the person who has everything.  Here we have a 24 karat Gold and Diamond MacBook Pro from Computer Choppers.  Let’s be honest, who cares about hard drive size and processor speed at this point.  If your carrying this around, your making a pretty profound statement by itself.  This laptop might be a little flashy, but it sure looks cool.  Just throw down a cook $29K and your golden!  Check out other Coinologist All Things Gold archive posts here.

Cross Pens

leave a comment »

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.
