For Sale: $15,000 Solid Gold LEGO Brick
This is a solid gold 2x4 LEGO brick for sale. Apparently they were awarded to employees and business partners of the company back in the late 70's and early 80's when I was just an ugly baby with a big head who crapped himself all the time.
This brick is 25.65g of 14K gold (0.8246 troy oz). The brick is the same size and shape as the original 2x4 LEGO brick.
This incredibly rare piece was given to LEGO employees that had 25 years of employement at the Hohenwestedt, Germany factory and was also given to couple of very special business partners of LEGO of the time. It was only given out from about 1979-1981, only one or 2 per year from my understanding.
This amazing brick comes in its original display box which features the LEGO logo of the time that it was given out.
Seeing how the piece isn't even an ounce and an ounce of gold is currently worth around $1,700, I guess you're paying for the rarity/collector's item-ness of the piece. Because if you just want a gold LEGO brick you could cast your own for way cheaper. Also, you seriously better have like, EVERYTHING else in the world first.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots.
Thanks to fat piggie, who *mouth watering* is gonna make some bacon lover really happy one day.
