    "Australia has unveiled the world's largest gold coin, weighing a massive 1,000 kg, to mark the visit of Queen Elizabeth II.

    The Perth Mint produced it in time for the Queen's visit to Western Australia for the Commonwealth heads of government meeting.

    It is nearly 80 cm in diameter and 12 cm thick."

    "It's made of 99.99% pure gold, measuring 4.7" in thickness and 31.5" in diameter. Amusingly, it has a nominal value of just a bit more than $1 million, which is obviously way below how much it really costs.
    Perth Mint's one ton kangaroo coin replaces the erstwhile largest, most expensive gold coin in the world by the Royal Canadian Mint. The Canadian coin weighs 220.5 lbs., and was sold to a Spanish company at an auction for $4.2 million back in 2010 — a lightweight and a cheapo compared to Perth Mint's mammoth gold bullion coin."

    why would it say 1 million dollars and have the picture of the queen???
    wouldn't it either say 1 million pounds, or have the picture of who ever American's put on the coin, Obama maybe???

    It's not American or European, it's Australian
