GoldCore has secured exclusive rights in Ireland and the UK for the sale of one of the largest and purest gold coins in the world - the first 'million dollar coin' - minted by The Royal Canadian Mint in 2007.
Only five of the bullion coins, weighing 100 kilos or 3,215 troy ounces each, are in existence today - and one of the 99.999pc pure gold coins has now become available for sale.
Each coin has a face value of $1m,
The coins were minted by the Royal Canadian Mint, which operates refineries, as well as minting Canadian bullion coin products including the popular Canadian Maple Leaf gold and silver bullion coins. The portrait of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II on one side is a work by celebrated Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt.
The reverse features a hand-polished maple leaf design by Royal Canadian Mint artist and engraver Stan Witten.
