Last week we wrote about the 10,000 dollar bank note in Singapore.

This week, we bring the 10 kilogram gold coin produced by the Canadian mint to your attention.

The coin is 99.999% pure gold. Its design is based on the Spirit of Haida Gwaii, a sculpture by Canadian artist Bill Reid.

Only 15 such coins will be crafted. Each has a face value of $100,000.
