If you’ve ever wondered what 18ct solid gold would feel like against your bare bottom, you can now find out. Head over to the Guggenheim museum where you can actually try out this loo for yourself.

According to Business Insider, over 100,000 people have queued to use the golden throne!

How about some solid gold loo roll to go with that toilet?

No, we're not joking. This gold toilet roll took 4 years to make and is made from 22ct gold. It went on sale for around £825,839. The toilet paper is delivered personally along with a bottle of champagne. Supposedly it takes you to a new level of sophistication.

The one roll that was made has now been sold, but that doesn’t mean more won’t be made. If you fancy spending a few thousand on loo roll, you can keep an eye on stocks here.

Gold pills

These pills contain 24ct gold leaf and their sole purpose is to make your excretions sparkly. At around $425 a pop, you’ve really got to have nothing better to spend your money on. Which was the sole artistic purpose of this product.

One of the creators of the pills said: “Like celebrity and celebrity culture, demand for luxury items is completely created. Like an addict, all I want is more.” The creators went on to make more gifts ‘for the man that has everything.’

More edible Solid Gold

What makes it so expensive? It contains edible gold, caviar, a replica Faberge egg, and, a non-edible 2ct diamond.
