    Thinking of using a gold coin as a pendant and was just wondering what everyone's thought are on what is the best looking gold coin?
    I'm a huge Swan fan but probably wouldn't wear it.
    The Redback Spider gold coin is a great looking coin but would be great to hear everyone's opinions and see pictures of what they think?
    Could even be a bar?
    Thanks

    I'd use a huge clock like Flavor Flav, then you can always be telling da bitches what time it is.

    The only coin for that purpose would be a sovereign imo.
    That said, flaunting gold coins around town these days is probably just asking for trouble.

    Reminds me of a dog tag. I can’t stand wearing anything, not even a watch. Had to wear watches before mobile phones.

    I've been wearing an analog watch since I can remember, feel absolutely naked without one. My last watch lasted 17 years and 2 full services to keep it going before I had to replace it. On the second service, he told me to just replace it when it dies as it wasn't viable to repair anymore which I ended up doing a few years ago

    You’re not a real stacker until you own at least one.

    How much does it cost for a christian burial? That's how much gold you should be wearing in case you get shipwrecked, drown at sea and get washed up on shore. Other than that I can't think of a good reason to wear gold.

    I'm pretty sure the person that discovers your bloated corpse will not be using the gold that you're wearing to arrange a funeral for you :D

    Gipsies and drifters often wear gold as a way of keeping their wealth close at hand, they can travel almost cashless, they'll trade or sell if required.

    It can be a way to transfer wealth across borders without the need for declaration.

    It can also be a last resort means of getting you out of trouble if your stuck for cash far from home for one reason or another.
    Basically a store of wealth that you will almost completely forget about until you absolutely have no other choice.

    Besides that it just looks good.
