5,000€ of Taj Mahal

Because if there's one thing I'm sure of, it is that our coins are insufficiently set with diamonds.  Luckily Monnaie de Paris, the French mint, has taken care of that with this 5,000€ (face) coin commemorating "The Year of India".  On the reverse is the Taj Mahal, with .5ct of diamonds set into the dome.

The diamonds probably have less to do with the price, 100,000€ then the Kg of gold...
