You'd need mighty deep pockets to jingle the new coins planned by the Royal Canadian Mint: Canada's official money-maker wants to stamp out a $1-million coin.

 

Coin experts say it would likely be made of gold, be the size of a pizza and be extremely heavy. Some numismatists wonder if it would be a good idea.

 

The federal cabinet passed an order earlier this month at the recommendation of the transport minister allowing the mint to stamp out the non-circulation coins.

"Ottawa, Ontario - May 3, 2007 - The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) today proudly introduced two exciting new products to the international gold bullion market: the world's first 100-kg, 99999 pure gold bullion coin with a $1 million face value and a 99999 pure one-ounce Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin. These coins, representing the highest achievement in gold purity in the bullion market, were unveiled at the RCM's Ottawa facility, where the coins were made."
