Buried in a Tomb Full of Gold

"When the Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s life-force left his body, the deceased found his eternal resting place inside a 250 pound, solid gold coffin. At current prices, that quantity of gold melted down into fungible specie would sell 4.8 million dollars. To put that into perspective, Michael Jackson, King of Pop was laid to rest in a gold-plated coffin that cost $25,000; a relative bargain."
