WORLD'S LARGEST NICKEL
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the world's largest nickel?



Back in the 1960's to honor the centennial of Canada the city of Sudbury, Ontario held a contest for an idea for a celebration project.

Since Sudbury produced just under 25% of the world's nickel Ted Szilva suggested building a giant Canadian nickel for the centennial.

He didn't win, but went ahead and had it built on his own by Bruno Carvallo and the Big Nickel Centennial Numismatic Amusement Park opened in 1964.

The cost of the Big Nickel: 700,000 real nickels or $35,000.00 if you hate math.
