    "...Models display clothes decorated with Australian gold coins at the Bunka Fashion college student's fashion show in Tokyo November 1, 2007..."

    Yeah, the closest ones look like Austrian Philharmonics.
    Wonder which Australian coin they used?

    Typical shottie journalism. I see also that the article is from 2007 so if you had brought those dresses you would be sitting on a nice little profit.

    While these jackets are a little gawdy for my taste they do represent a novel way of transporting bullion/money around. Weaving coinage into clothes has a long history and not just for fashion's cents...errr sense ;)

    if these were '66 50's you could easily carry $100 on your belt

    and imagine how you'd go if these were 1/10th ounce lunar dragons?!...

    Each of those skirt weight more than 12kg. How in the hell anyone can wear them?
