The value of the Euro has increased during the recession and so has it's fashion. This is a photograph of limited edition gold and silver 5 Euro coins designed by Karl Lagerfeld to mark the 125th anniversary of Coco Chanel. They are priced at 5900 Euros which is about 7500 American dollars.
I'm envisioning wearing them as pendants. I want one to hang from a chain around my neck.
