Gold Monopoly Game

Have you heard about this gold monopoly game? According to the WSJ blog, this special edition was handcrafted out of 18k gold and is highlighted with various jewels. It took creator Sidney Mobell, a jeweler, 365 days to finish the piece. It should be noted that when Mobell started working on the game, gold was selling for $360-$460 per ounce, but now goes for some $1300 per ounce — making the game worth some $2 million!!! Wow!
