Was wondering how much it is worth.
Many years back (just after sa won) I spent an evening "baby siting" the thing.

Google is not being terribly co-oprative

The problem is knowing the ratio of gold to silver in the trophy.

The price of silver is R212 per ounce, which is R6.84 per gram. The trophy is 4.5kg, so if it was only silver it would be worth R30 774.

The price of gold is R13 636 per ounce, which is R439.87 per gram. If it were completely gold it would be worth R1 979 419.

Here is a photo of it, with Zangief in the background.... Oh wait sorry. Wrong event. That was Kobus Wiese

In all its glory at Monte Casino last year. But I was told that this is just a replica and chances of ever seeing the original is very slim.
