Michael Jackson to be Buried in 14K Gold Plated Coffin

Michael Jackson is set to be buried in this 14-karat gold coffin from the Batesville Casket Company, which seems very fitting for the King of Pop.

Michael Jackson’s custom casket is modeled after a very similar coffin which James Brown was buried in.

The coffin itself is made from solid bronze, is plated with gold and has a dark blue velvet interior. I’d say Michael Jackson himself couldn’t have picked a more fitting casket for his final resting place. Stats for $25,000 Coffins Trending: Older & Average
