Coco Coins

To celebrate the 125th anniversary of Gabrielle Chanel's birth, Karl Lagerfeld has designed commemorative coins - 2 silver and 2 gold. The coins are in the value of 5 euros, thematic throughout the history of Chanel and with a very definite reference to the iconic No 5 fragrance.

The 11,009 coins will go on sale on 1st December and there is already a waiting list. The coin has the head of Chanel on one side surrounded by pearls interspersed with the word COCO and has the number 5 laid over the infamous quilting (matelasse) on the other.

The 99 limited edition pieces of the gold coin, weighing in at 5 ounces, are being produced at 5,900 euros - a staggering £4650. I'm sure I can think of better ways to part with my cash in Chanel than the purchase of this coin!
