The Perth Mint has reported that its unique 3-kilo + diamond coin set has indeed sold for A$1.8 Million (~US$1.36 Million). Back in June, we reported the details (link) of this bold marketing concept and wondered whether the coins would sell.

“While several discerning parties expressed interest in purchasing the rare treasure, it was sold via Glajz-THG Pte Ltd.”, a Singapore based company specializes in rare gemstones and luxury jewelry.
