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
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.
