The Royal Mint has released a set of six luxury crackers costing £5,000 containing prizes such as a diamond necklace and a gold bar
But aside from the five star prizes, customers will also find the traditional hat, a trivia card and the all-important ‘bang’ in every cracker.
The website suggests that they make the perfect to gift for ‘families, work colleagues or as a corporate gift.’
The Royal Mint has also offered up a cheaper alternative in the form of its silver cracker box.
But while the silver selection is a tenth of the price, it still comes in at an eye-watering £500, considerably more than your average cracker pack.
It has also launched a silver set, at £500, with gifts including a honey drizzler and a book mark
The silver selection contains prizes such as a silver compass, silver compact mirror, silver money clip, silver and olive wood honey drizzler, cufflinks and bookmark.
The sets are part of the Royal Mint’s debut gifting range – its first in its 1,000 year history.
The complete range will initially include a total of 58 unique pieces, ranging from a sixpence spoon set, to silver hallmarked cufflinks, and a teddy bear.
