On the top floor of the art gallery at the Museum of Fine Arts (Kunsthistorisches Museum) in Vienna, Austria (which I’ll present in a different post) there is a very interesting exhibition including a 100 kg pure fine gold coin. This coin was unveiled in May, 3rd 2007 by the Royal Canadian Mint. The designer was artist Stanley Witten, and the coin has a value of $1 million Canadian dollars. Here are some pictures of this promotional tool for Royal Canadian Mint – of course, as you can imagine, the coin is isolated in a reinforced glass cage (and protected by other security measures as well… But c’mon, who could possibly lift 100 kg without some serious equipment? 🙂 )
