Can You Spare Any Change?

I’ve made up my mind – all I want for Christmas this year is a single coin. Nothing more, just this simple Canadian gold coin:

Canadian Gold Coin

OK, so maybe it’s not so simple, and I’m not sure how you’re going to get it to me. This giant Canadian coin, recently released by the Canadian Royal Mint, measures almost two feet across, weighs over 250 pounds, and is worth almost twice its $1 Million Canadian face value. via Reuters

But if you’re going to ask for just one thing, might as well make it big, right?

    I guess they have to do something with their gold, since they don’t have a lot of gangstas with fancy grillz.

    All you have to do is write a letter to Santa.

    Aim high, achieve low, result… somewhere in the middle. So, based on this, you should at least score SOME money for Christmas! 😉

    Well, I don’t like gold (its color), but i could find a use for this coin :)

    BTW, it’s the “Royal Canadian Mint” not the “Canadian Royal Mint”, although as an anti-monarchist I’d favour “Canadian Bloody Mint” or something like that, eh. Take off!
