One Million Dollar Coin

Filed under: Educational,Ramblings — M Kitchen @ 4:48 pm

Interesting… a One Million Dollar Coin from the Royal Canadian Mint!

The worlds first 100 kg. 99999 pure gold bullion coin with a $1 million face value, and at 53 centimetres (21 inches) in diameter and over 3 cm (1.2 inches) thick, the massive coin is the size of an extra-large pizza, was introduced on May 2, 2007 to the international market.

Coins minted from precious metals have intrigued me ever since I did the research for Spud & Harry #1.

  1. You’d think there was something better to do with a million dollars than build a big coin…….. like anything other than building a big coin, for instance.

  2. It isn’t so much DOING something with 1 million dollars as it IS 1 million dollars.

    If I was to ever have 1 million dollars, I’d want to have it as a giant pizza sized gold coin.

  4. Hmm… I wonder if the million dollar coin is bugged. Better get the Defense Department on that ASAP.
