Hello,

Iridium is a precious metal, but is only a percentage of the value of 24K gold. There are a lot of scams about iridium, so being cautious is very important when dealing with people who are trying to say it is very sale able.

 

This link goes over many of the questions you may have about irridium, how it is used and the value of the coin: http://www.finishing.com/158/54.shtml

 

These are two links that list the value of Irridium and the current pricing: www.kitco.com and www.mineralprices.com

 

I hope this information is helpful.

Expert:  Joan replied 2 years ago.

Hello,

I am not sure about the Statue you are speaking about. If you can give me some further information, I will try to assist you with that.

Hello,

The smuggling of artifacts has been world wide. Unfortunately it is a matter of greed. People are not only smuggling Indian arifacts, but they are also going after Ivory tusks from Elephants, animals that are native to other countries like rare birds and exotics, and other items.

 

Some people are dishonest and it is all about how to make money. These people have no scruples and are dishonest and seek out ways to make the highest amount of money. Luckily the person who had stolen the statue was caught.

I hope this explanation helps.
