Gold Coins of the World
Since the earliest times of civilization gold has been the pursuit of kings, emperors and the rich alike as a symbol of power, glory and splendor. Gold enshrined Thrones, Crowns and the Royal attire of rajas, rulers and tsars alike. Pharaohs even carried the glitter to their graves. As early as 1000 BC king Solomon sent his navy across the world in search of the precious metal to adorn his temple and his 500 concubines.  It is not surprising to see these ambitious great men and women to have their symbol of trade, power and gods on gold.
