Solid gold calendar

Solid gold calendar.This solid gold calendar is created by Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka to mark the coming of the year 2007. It is made of 6 kilograms of gold and measures 42 cm by 67 cm.

On the back of the calendar is an image of historical Japanese military commander Takeda Shingen (1521-1573), who is believed to have produced the first gold coins in Japan. Since the calendar was printed on a sheet of pure gold, the front face is shiny and serves as a mirror.

With a price tag of US $171,000, it is designed only for the rich.
