This is kind of interesting. From MSNBC:
Customers flocking to Britain’s most prestigious department store, Harrods, this holiday season will now be able to add gold bars to their basket while shopping for the perfect present.
This latest arrival to hit the shelves comes in a range of sizes, from just over two pounds to 27.5 pounds. There’s also a range of coins on offer, from British sovereigns to South African Krugerrands to American gold eagles…At today’s market prices, 2.2 pounds of Harrods gold will set you back about $35,000. And the top-of-the-line bar, which weighs in at 27.5 pounds, will cost you $429,482.
