Switzerland has unveiled the world’s smallest gold coin, featuring an image the of scientist Albert Einstein.
At only 2.96-millimetres across and weighing just 0.063 grams the new coin is tiny. It is roughly around the size of the tip of a match stick.
The coin has a value of 1/4 of a Swiss franc ($0.26) and can be ordered online.
According to Swissmint, 999 of the coins have been made, and a single coin will be sold for 199 francs (NZ$312). Each coin will be accompanied with a special magnifying glass so owners can see Einstein.
The gold coin represents Swissmint’s official 2020 commemorative coin and celebrates the works of Einstein.
