Solid Gold Coin Worth $1 Million Created

Have you ever wondered what a million dollars looks like? Apparently it looks like a 21-inch solid gold coin.

The Canadians have decided to produce a precious few of these $1 million coins for some strange reason. If I had a million bucks, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't spend it on a single coin. Then I'd be walking around asking people if they could break a million.

On second thought, I would buy one of these. As it turns out, the gold itself is actually worth twice as much as the face value of the coin. That really doesn't make much sense.
