RCM's 10 Kilo Coin

One has to hand it to the Royal Canadian Mint. If one of the 100 kg solid gold coins is slightly outside your budget the RCM has a nifty 10 kg variety (limited edition of 20, don't be ridiculous pffft) thats sure to tickle your expensive fancy.

Featured is west coast artist Bill Reid's iconic "The Spirit of Haida Gwaii"
