Let’s assume for a moment you’re a billionaire. I know, it’s crazy! But just imagine all those zeros on your bank account. What would be the first expensive thing you’d buy? A villa on your private island? The fastest gaming computer money can buy? Donate most of your fortune to animal shelters? Well, if you’re looking for ideas on how to spend millions of dollars in a single purchase, or simply would like to know how insanely expensive some items out there are, we’ve got you covered!
Here’s a list of some of the rarest and most valuable things in the world.
1. 1933 $20 Double Eagle Coin: $7.9 Million
This is a real legend among the colletors, since there’s only 1 coin left in private hands. The rest are tucked away safely in a federal facility somewhere.
2. Painite Gemstone: $60,000/carat
What do you think is the rarest gemstone on Earth? Diamonds, rubies, and sapphires? Not a chance! It’s Painite, which so far has only been found on a tiny piece of land in Myanmar.
3. Spider-Man Comic (Amazing Fantasy #15): $1.1 Million
It’s no surprise that something as huge as comic books would one day be worth a lot of money. But not a single kid who bought Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962 could ever imagine that some 60 years later this very piece of paper would be selling for $1.1 million.
4. Caviar of the East: $10,000/g
Nests of a certain type of birds in Asia are a real delicacy. They are washed, cooked, and served as soup. A nest from a farm can cost up to $30 in China, which is already quite a lot, but wild-caught nest can go as high as $10,000 a gram! And it’s basically bird spit.
5. Parking Spot in Manhattan: $1 Million
If you’re a native New-Yorker, there’s a chance you’ve tried finding a parking space and had to drive like 4 blocks away, just to ditch your car in the end and set it on fire, because it’s not worth the trouble. If you had an extra 1 million dollars lying around, you could get this parking spot in downtown Manhattan!
6. Magnetic Floating Bed: $1.6 million
If you had a magnetic floating bed, you’d basically be levitating like some freaking superhero! And it can also support up to 2,000 pounds, so even your mom can get on top and jump around. All that luxury for mere $1.6 mil? I’ll take it!
7. Huia Bird Feather: $10,000
There’s gotta be a mistake here, right? $10k for a single feather? Well, that price makes sense when you realize that the Huia bird it comes from has gone extinct.
8. Pasión Azteca Tequila: $3.5 million
You won’t find this tequila in a store nearby, and it’s not only because it’s the strongest tequila, the bottle itself is made of platinum and white gold. And to add to the value almost 6,500 diamonds are sprinkled all over it.
9. Honus Wagner baseball card: $3.12 million
Baseball cards – every American’s favorite game mixed with the thrill of collecting and exchanging cards with your friends. It’s all fun and games, and you may be proud of your 1000-dollar collection, but if you had a Honus Wagner card you’d be a millionaire! It’s the rarest and most valuable card in the whole world.
