Gold Coin World Record

OTTAWA - Got change for a million? Canada does: the world's biggest pure gold coin at 200 pounds. Already, three buyers have shelled out for one of the 1 million Canadian dollar coins introduced last week.

The Royal Canadian mint made the coins 20 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick mostly to seize the bragging rights from Austria, which had the record with a 70-pound, 15-inch wide coin.

"They're not doing this because there is huge demand for 100-kilo gold coins," Bret Evans, editor of Canadian Coin News said Saturday. "They're doing it because it gives them some bragging rights in having the largest purest gold coin in the world."

So much for the term "pocket change"

This brings the important question.

Will this ever be converted to chocolate?

Now THAT would make a great birthday gift...

Screw "Daddy, I want a pony!"

"Daddy, I want a chocolate coin the size of my head and four times my weight!"

Note: the above situation was not meant to be sexist. it just happens that my sister and father have an ongoing joke where she asks my father for a pony regularly.

This Is The Kind Of Article

I enjoy posting on the Current Events Board. This was just interesting information I found today. Very little to debate about this, however, those topics should be posted on the Debate Hall. Someone let me know if I'm right cause I'm trying to be a good user.
