$275,000 Gold Coin Gown
- By: AymanFeb 18, 2008
Wear your riches on your sleeve. Japan's largest bullion house showed off a gleaming gown which is covered with hundreds of gold coins. The 8 kilos (18 pounds) dress was created by Tanaka Kikinzoku Jewellery K.K. using 325 Austrian gold coins issued to commemorate the Vienna Philharmonic and is valued at 30 million yen ($275,000). The bullion house does not plan to sell the gown, but it said it would entertain any serious offers. Two men's jackets also using gold coins, together valued at about 127 million yen, were created.
