World’s Largest .99999 Fine Gold Coin

leave a comment »

WOW, that’s all I have to say about this Canadian Maple Leaf.  It’s not new, having been minted three years ago, but it’s just recently back in the news.  This coin is the world’s largest .99999 fine gold bullion coin ever produced. It weights in at 100 kilos (220 lbs 7 oz), is 3 centimeters thick (1.18 inches) and has a diameter of 50 centimeters (19.7 inches).  Just as a United States coin must show a denomination to be legal tender, this coin bear the value of one million Canadian Dollars.  The coin just sold at auction for $4,200,000, which means they purchased it for its troy ounce weight value.  It was one of only five pieces produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2007.  This coin has earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.
