The Royal Canadian Mint has produced the world's first 100-kilogram gold coin with a face value of $1 million. The coin is the size of a "very thick pizza".

MMMMMMMMM.... GOLD PIZZA!

A mint spokesperson said the coins will sell for between $2.5 million and $3 million. So far, the mint has received confirmed orders for five coins.

Now that's one coin I won't carry in my purse. [Big Grin] (First because it wouldn't fit, second because it's too heavy, third because I'd be afraid of having my purse stolen, and fourth because I can't afford it. [crazy] )
