Japanese jewelry brand Ginza Tanaka created this 24-karate solid gold Godzilla statue in celebration of Godzilla's 60th anniversary since debuting on film screens around the world in 1954.

It's only once that a famous cinematic monster turns 60 so Ginza Tanaka decided to make it a memorable birthday with this solid gold statue dedicated to the iconic lizard. Ginza Tanaka was commissioned to replicate the towering monster as a 24-karate miniature figurine. While Godzilla is known for trampling on cities, this miniature figurine only measures 24-centimeters high. This solid gold Godzilla weighs roughly 15 pounds and is estimated to have a price tag of $1.5 million. If you have cash to spend, this solid gold Godzilla would look great on your nightstand.
