Switzerland Mints World's Smallest Gold Coin
« on: January 24, 2020, 03:09:36 AM »
BERLIN (AP) No joke: Switzerland has minted a gold coin so small you'd need to look very closely to see Albert Einstein sticking out his tongue at you.

This  Swissmint gold coin with the face of Albert Einstein on the image side. State-owned Swissmint said Thursday that the 2.96-millimeter (0.12-inches) gold coin is the smallest in the world. It weighs 0.063 grams (1/500th of an ounce) and has a nominal value of 1/4 Swiss francs ($0.26).  (Handout Swissmint/Benjamin Zurbriggen via AP)View all (2)

It weighs 0.063 grams (1/500th of an ounce) and has a nominal value of 1/4 Swiss francs ($0.26).

Swissmint said the coin, of which just 999 have been made, will be sold for 199 francs with a special magnifying glass so owners can see the famous physicist on its face.

There are no ancient secrets to decoding the past, there is only great research and applied logic.
