World's Largest Coin Up For Auction
What would you do with an over-220 pound gold coin the size of a pizza? I have no idea, but if you've got a hankering to put your money in gold, now is your chance. Teletrade is holding an online auction of the world's largest gold coin, recently produced by the Royal Canadian Mint. The coin contains more than $2 million of gold bullion and features maple leaves on one side and Queen Elizabeth II on the other. It is one of three purchased by Teletrade's sister company, A-Mark Precious Metals, Inc. The coin is the first of the 100-kilo Canadian coins available to the public and will be auctioned off on August 16, but bidding has already started.
