New Delhi: The smallest gold coin in the world featuring legendary scientist Albert Einstein has been recently minted by Switzerland, reported Fox News.
The gold coin of about 0.12 inches of diameter has been made by state-owned Swissmint and features the scientist sticking out his tongue. The size of the coin weighing /500th of an ounce is so small that it comes along with a magnifying glass for observing Einstein’s cheeky image.
The price of each gold coin has been pegged at USD 205 and only 999 of these have been made by producers.
Famed physicist Einstein was granted Swiss citizenship in the year 1901 and he was also a recipient of the 1921 Noble Prize for physics.
“Swissmint drew inspiration from Albert Einstein, not least because of his determination and patience,” Fox News quoted a news release. (ANI)
