I'm sure the "I like turtles" child would have a field day with the Damien Hirst Silver Turtle. This animal sculpture is made of solid silver and has diamond-embossed eyes. There has never been a more valuable turtle on the planet.

The Damien Hirt Silver Turtle was created in commemoration of Damien Hirst's 'Cornucopia' exhibition at Musée Océanographique de Monaco in April 2010. This turtle goes for about $10,000, easily making it the most expensive thing in the museums gift shop. Stats for $10,000 Turtle Sculptures Trending: Older & Chilly
