The real reason you won’t be seeing the planeur at your next housewarming party
A new model boat decorated with hundreds of gold and silver coins has caused an outcry on social media.
The model was designed to show off the Australian dollar, and it even features a “gold” coin with a white stripe across it.
But the boat was designed with a silver coin, which is actually the reverse of the coin, and instead of a white line it has a red one.
It’s been shared thousands of times on social networks and is a major disappointment for those who wanted to see it.
“It’s not really a boat, it’s a car,” said one user on the Instagram page for the boat.
“You can actually see that the car was painted silver.”
The boat was also painted with a gold coin, but this one is much less expensive, with $1,200 being the average price paid for a silver one.
The silver coin was sold by the same company which sold the boat to the public.
