World’s largest gold coin (100kg)
The largest gold coin in the world, weighing 100kg and with a face value of CA$1 million was recently on display in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The gold coin, produced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2007, is approximately 50cm in diametre and about 3cm thick and has a purity of 99.999%.
Although the 100kg coin has a face value of $1 million, it would cost approximately CA$2.6 million (or US$2.4 million) to purchase, based on the market value of gold.
