What a way to go. This coffin, covered in 24 carat gold, was made by Art Funeral Italy and debuted at the 2010 Verona Luxury and Yacht show - an event known to be "for billionaires only."
Just in case the dearly departed needs to make a call from the beyond, it also comes with a gold-plated mobile phone. The coffin's worth an estimated $400,000.
Singers Michael Jackson and James Brown were buried in gold coffins, as was notorious Australian gangster Carl Williams - all presumably without a phone.
