For those with more money than taste... the £125,000 diamond encrusted gold coins on sale to celebrate Queen's jubilee


Forget commemorative mugs or tea towels, there's now a much more elaborate souvenir on sale to mark the Queen's diamond jubilee. 

But with a price tag of £125,000, you'll need more money than taste in order to afford it.  
The East India Company has released 60 minted gold coins, one for each year of Queen Elizabeth II's reign, encrusted with diamonds to celebrate the royal milestone.

Despite the hefty price tag, the company has revealed that it has had 'brisk and determined interest' from monarchist collectors and investors from across the globe.
