Monopoly Game Set Made of Gold

Jeweler Sidney Mobell spent a year crafting a Monopoly game set made out of gold:

An 18-karat gold version of the famous Parker Brothers board game will be on display beginning Friday at the Museum of American Finance. The gold and jewel-encrusted Monopoly is estimated to be worth roughly $2 million.

The set of dice alone is valued at $10,000, with 42 full-cut diamonds for the number dots. All of the properties that make up the game board are also set in gems, with some 165 gemstones in total. The “Chance” and “Community Chest” cards are photo-etched.

The set has only been used once when Mobell competed against former British Prime Minister Edward Heath.
