Legendary 24K gold Wii console “for the Queen of England” is being auctioned online


The current opening price has come to $2,500

The 24k gold Nintendo Wii console never made it to Buckingham Palace due to the British royal family’s strict policy on receiving gifts and security concerns. It wasn’t until 2017 that Dutch collector and Consolevariations founder Donny Fillerup acquired it from an unnamed collector and tried to sell it on eBay last October. However, due to eBay’s new policy, the item was eventually taken off the market for more than a reasonable price and only recently resurfaced on goldin.

“Here’s the ultimate Wii collectible, built for Her Majesty the Queen in a (somewhat silly and unsuccessful) marketing ploy. Both the console and controller are plated in 24k solid gold. Both have minor wear and tear, however.” In addition, the list includes the Big Family Games game, sensors, and the necessary electrical equipment. As of this posting, bids have reached $2,500, so those interested may wish to bid at goldin before May 21.
