18-Karat Gold Jeweled Monopoly Set

The Museum of American Finance is now exhibiting an 18-karat solid gold Monopoly set covered with hundreds of precious gemstones, on loan from the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History. The Smithsonian received the game as one of 20 jeweled art objects from the personal collection of world-renowned artist and jeweler Sidney Mobell. A long-time resident of San Francisco, Mobell is known for his fanciful and innovative employment of everyday household items as works of art. This unique object is in the Guinness Book of World Records for its value (the dice alone are worth $10,000). It will be on display at the Museum, located at 48 Wall Street, through October 2012.
