A rare 24-Karat gold, Samoan coin is up for grabs for a whopping $1,530 tala ($US600) on eBay.

Featuring the Samoan coat of arms on one side, the Samoa i Sisifo – 100 Tala coin was minted in Samoa in 1981 – in commemoration of the marriage of H.R.H Prince Charles and the late Lady Diana Spencer.

Only 1500 of these coins were ever made.

According to the top-rated dealer, ‘bullionfrenzy’, Samoa’s then-Head of State, His Highness Malietoa Tanumafili II, presented the same coin to Queen Elizabeth II as a gift during the Royal wedding celebrations, with the other 1499 coin sets gifted to members of the Royal family and the newly-married couple.

Bullionfrenzy says that the coin was a “very rare collector’s item”, with the other coins already “dispersed into the hands of adherents of the monarchy” as well as to well-founded collectors.

With a diameter of 2.87 cm and weighing 7.5 grams, the coin is in “excellent condition” and ships from Sylmar, California, US.
