$2 Million Monopoly Board Made of Solid 18K Gold and 165 Gem Stones

The most expensive tag is becoming a bit predictable and repetitive. Make it in gold and platinum and beautify it with diamonds and voila you have the most expensive item. Still, if it is taste fully done it has its own aesthetic appeal. The Wall Street Journal, no less has reported about the most expensive Monopoly board in the world. In the times when you can have a peel off Monopoly game from your local McDonalds talking about a $2 million Monopoly board sounds unreal.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the board is made of solid 18k gold and all the famed properties on the board are gem-set for a total of 165 gemstones. And then there’s the dice; the set has 42 full cut diamonds in place of the dots and is worth $10,000 alone. Since the budget was never a constraint it has been created in the best possible way.

The report estimates the total value of the board at $2 million approximately. But the way the price of gold is zooming up the estimates might have to be revised upwards on a daily basis. This most expensive Monopoly set will be on display for the next two years starting tomorrow at New York’s Museum of American Finance.
