World’s largest gold coin unveiled in Australia

Dragon hoards with 2 gold coins? Just not as much fun.

The giant coin weighs more than one tonne and is worth A$53.5 million (£35.1m).

The massive coin weighs some 2,231lb and is 99.99 per cent pure gold. It is 31 inches wide and is more than 4.7 inches thick.
