During the last 25 years I've seen a lot of strange objects marketed as coins; skulls, baseballs, coins that glow, & now thisĀ šŸ¤Ø.2022-s5d-3oz-blue-mapble-green-planet-with-display-case.jpg.4443cc01791d147db9def8292a1076e4.jpg1018618828_Barbados5.jpg.d289980e791213ddf9823efdec208cdb.jpg

Believe it or not, this 3 oz. marble made of .999 silver is being marketed as a $5.00 coin that is legal tender in BarbadosĀ šŸ¤£. It has been enameled by hand, comes with a certificate of authenticity, has a luxury display case, & will arrive in Gem BUĀ condition. Price $399.00. Modern Coin Mart is the vendor hustling these odditiesĀ šŸ¤“.

As a curiosity I would add this to my collection, but of course not at this price.

TheĀ MeteoriteĀ version is a gem, thanks for postingĀ šŸ¤©!

The Blue Marble Series is the product of MDM Wholesalers, a German firm specializing in bringing together countries and ideas.

According to their brochure, if you have an idea -- or better yet, hold rights to a comic book or movie franchise -- you can get your idea minted by one of 16 participating countries.Ā  (Prices are not listed.)

Spherical coins don't excite me.Ā  My personal idea isn't on the brochure.Ā  I'd like to see Roman coins counterstamped as legal tender in a modern country.Ā  (Better yet: two countries).Ā  I believe these would generate a lot of publicity.
