What Japanese goldsmith Ginza Tanaka decided to do with 850 grams of gold was to craft a beer mug. Apparently, consuming the beverage from a golden mug adds to the pleasure of beer drinking. Drinking beer from a glass the cost of a luxury car is the ultimate cool experience, so states the designer. Ginza is also known for other gold workings, namely the golden threaded bikinis, X-mas statuettes and other luxurious golden miscellanea. Gold wine glasses are also available at $30/gram. The solid gold beer mug’s ticket price: $50,000.
