    I see these odd things, but this one is simply ridiculous. These are being sold at "coin" dealers? No biggie if you like fishing and want to collect fishing lures, but geez..

    I absolutely despise that... Why? Just why? That's taking coin collecting to an unnecessary level

    Is that pure gold?

    It says 1/10th ounce. They want like $340 for it at one dealer at least.

    That makes it even more ridiculous and unnecessary.

    I'd cut out the coin and sell the rest of the gold

    To catch "goldfish" possibly?

    As long as someone buys this stuff the mints will continue to sell it. Collectors can become obsessed and spend ridiculous amounts of money for anything to do with their collection.

    I whine for a good 6 months when I lose a $10 lure. I couldn't fathom losing a $340 one.

    It's stamped Au .9999 at the top. I'd likely get it hung up on the first cast, so NO.

    I don't think you can. The WHOLE thing IS the coin. It's shaped like that purposely.

    Gold spoon now how about a real gold hook/rich people fishing spend $1,000 on just one hook/spoon and lure/ Now who wants to post the real gold fishing lure for the complete package? 20201030_204908.jpg 20201030_204924.jpg 20201030_204954.jpg

    Found the lure you can fish with it on the bottom can fit 8 hooks and your set. 20201030_205936.jpg 20201030_210113.jpg 20201030_210002.jpg
