GoldCore has secured rights in Ireland and the UK for the sale of one of the largest and purest gold coins in the world.

The very rare coin, with a face value of $1m, was minted by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2007.

There are only five of these bullion coins, weighing 100 kilos or 3,215 troy ounces each, in existence.

GoldCore said the coin "combines craftsmanship and artistry with the unprecedented technical achievement of 99.999% purity in gold bullion".
