Minted In Prague at Czech National Bank’s Money Expo

Money, money, money. No, I’m not talking about the Abba song, but the path along which money has travelled stretching as far back as civilization itself.

Mk2 Ford Escort In Gold & Silver With Diamonds & Rubies

Mk2 Ford Escort In Gold & Silver With Diamonds & Rubies

If bling is more your thing than driving then this is the perfect car for you. It’ll never be roadworthy, but this Ford Escort is worth a fortune. Why? It’s a one-off 1:25 scale model made from silver, gold and diamonds.
The project has been a slow-burning labour of love for professional jeweller – and petrolhead – Russell Lord. The owner, over the years, of 55 full-sized Ford Escort cars, Lord first began work on this amazing model 25 years ago, pouring thousands of hours into completing the car.
