The $58,000,000 Ounce Of Gold – World’s Most Expensive Coin Item Graded by PCGS: Casascius 1,000 BTC

(Link to Articles Below) Let's go over some recent coin news – PCGS has certified what is now the most expensive coin item or numismatic item in the world. I would probably consider it a token… let's go through the recent news and think through what it is, how it got graded, what has happened to it, and its value relative to other collectibles. Should it count as a coin, token, or numismatic item, or is it something completely different? The reason it is so expensive is completely removed from its production or numismatic value, which I think is something different from a true numismatic rarity. Still… it's the most expensive ounce of gold, but let's hope it doesn't get melted for bullion value.

  1. It is not backed by any Government so it is to me non numismatic. It is no different than a stock certificate.
