Pocket Change

Not exactly. According to BBC, a coin with the world's highest face value, one million dollars, has sold for four times it's face value. According to Gold Price, a gram of gold was most recently valued at $40.33 (USD), so the 100 kg gold coin, simply in terms of its metal content, is worth $4,033,000.I know coin collectors buy and sell rare coins for prices that are unimaginable to me, but this has got to take the cake.
