What a great idea. Let’s see now, I think a gold kruger is one ounce, and at around $1500 an ounce, at todays price, that will be a very nice gift. And, gold will always be going up. Who knows what they will be worth 15 or so years from now when they will receive the gift. And, the beautiful box that they will be in will make the gift even better.

Oh, just a small thing, I believe Krugerrand is one word, not two. Or at least that’s what I recall from many years ago when I bought one.

Nice boxes, and nice tradition. Traditions, no matter how simple are things that make memories. More than you’ll ever know.
I too am interested in knowing more about your hinges.
