    I have one of these. It certainly is a hefty coin.

    Yes, you wouldn't want to make a necklace out of one
    Thank you. I have other crowns but not one of these till now. Lord M's great sharing spirit made it possible

    I have literally ninety-eight more of those things sitting here in a (heavy!) box lot I bought recently, so I predict quite a few other people are going to end up being plagued with getting them in giveaways in the not-too-distant future... ;)
