A giant British coin which is made of an incredible 30 ounces of gold is set to sell for £56,000. ($80,000)<br />
<br />
The Elizabeth II coin, whose value in gold alone is £35,000, is worth even more as only 21 of them were struck in 2017.<br />
<br />
It is a whopping 4ins in diameter and carries a large side portrait of the Queen wearing her crown.<br />
<br />
On the reverse is a modern interpretation of Britannia who has been merged into the outline of the British isles.<br />

The coin was given an arbitrary denomination of '800 Pounds' but has been minted for commemorative purposes. It is going under the hammer with Heritage Auctions, of Dallas, Texas.
