At the current gold value/gram, and current yen rate, they are trying to sell you approximately $136,100 worth of gold for approximately $553,600. That's about a $417,500 profit for each one they sell.

Well, but you have to appreciate the art work. Rather than look at the real Tokyo Tower out of your window, you can look at this replica on your desk. Isn´t that pleasure worth a paltry 40 million yen?

The Japanese economy can't be that bad if somebody actually buys a paperweight like this.

50 years old Golden Tokyo Tower may be a good buy for Silver Aged person.
