Million dollar coin for auction

The world’s largest coin – the Canadian $1,000,000 piece – is being offered by Teletrade, the on-line auction company. It weighs in at 220 pounds of pure gold! While it has a face value of C$1m, its bullion value is much higher.

Canada plans to mint at least four more coins in the series, which shows maple leaves on one side and Queen Elizabeth II, on the other.
