A Pretty Penny
Karl Lagerfeld is a money maker. Literally. He has designed a new 5 Euro coin for the French Mint which he unveiled yesterday. The coin is in honor of the 125th anniversary of Coco Chanel's
birthday and features the French icon's portrait on one side, and her signature quilted pattern on the other. Although it is being pressed as a 5 Euro piece, this coin's gonna cost you a lot of coin. The limited edition currency will range in price from 45 Euros to 5,900 Euros and will be on the market December 1. Coco coins would be a great way to dress up your savings account. Just don't lose them in the couch cushions or feed them to the meter.
