The World's Largest coin - the100 Kilo half metre wide gold CAN$1Million Maple leaf has sold for US$ 4Million at the Dorotheum Auction House in Austria. Admittedly the price of gold has had much to do with the phenomenal price but you have to ask yourself will this ever actually be melted down for its scrap value? Highly unlikely - what is likely is a rush of copycat giant coins "struck" as other Mints get in on the act. Watch this space!
