There were only five made – all of which are in private hands. It is a collector’s item and commands a premium both for its gold bullion content but also for being incredibly rare.
With the current gold price today of US$ 1,234 per troy ounce, it puts an immediate value just in gold terms on this coin at US $3,967,310 (€ 3,542,241). Any premium over this amount would be down to the coin’s rarity.
