Australia mints the world's biggest, and most pointless, coin

Change it ? You'd need a fork lift just to carry it around.

Not quite pointless - it's a showpiece and a record breaker.

Useless - yes :)

I must admit I would like one as a present if the Australians are feeling generous and it would be difficult to lose :-)

Yes, you'd need a pretty big sofa to lose this coin...

Rolf Harris's 'Tie Me Kangaroo Down' & 'Sun Arise' should be etched in, before 'Her Royal Majesty',has a look. 'Two little boys' is also another one to consider.(William and Harry)

Well that's A$50,000,000 well spent...
