Recommended Posts

CNN has published an article authored by Oscar Holland on a commemorative coin made for the late Queen Elizabeth II, said to be the world's most valuable coin. The coin contains nearly 8 pounds of gold & 6,426 diamonds 😮! This coin has to be the epitome of decadence & fitting for the British monarchy.

What they don't tell you is right after the camera flashed he accidentally dropped it. 😄

Joking aside, that is a seriously impressive piece of work.

Many hours of labor went into that creation, but was it worth the time & expense 🤔?

Wonder if they edited the photo. The chocolate coin seems to not be perfectly round, looking at the space on the right between his fingers. Seems jagged! Weird. 

Yes I noticed that. Definitely a mistake in Photoshop. Perhaps there was something behind him that they removed but didn't do a good job of tidying up.

Perhaps the lizard people tried to hide something! 😉
