Know Money, Win Money! Episode 12: One of a Kind Market


Happy new year to fans of questions, answers, and cash! Know Money, Win Money is back in 2018 and we’re going to be handing out more money to people who show they know money than ever before!

The first episode of the new year is coming to you live* from the One of a Kind Market at Merchandise Mart in the Chicago Loop. One of a Kind Market is a place where artists and craftspeople of all kinds sell their creations, from photographs to portraits, to jewelry and cutting boards and wine carafes, to pretty much whatever you can imagine that isn’t alive or illegal. We chose to ask vendors and shoppers alike about some of the finer** things in life.

First, we asked about the world’s most expensive diamond, the Pink Star. Just how expensive is that star? A little over $71 million. As of this writing, it was last auctioned off on April 4th, 2017, in Hong Kong for around that price. $71.2 million, if we want to be super specific. Better to get the number exact so we know how much to set the GoFundMe for.

After that, we asked about every eccentric old prospector’s favorite element, gold! Yee haw! Woo hee! Gold! Gold! There’s gold in this tharr question. And while you don’t have to be a prospector to know that 24 karat gold is the purest form of gold, you might not know what the least pure form is. Unless you watched the video. But just in case, we’ll tell you: 9 karats.

That was a good start, but we’ve got a lot more money to hand out this year, so the next time you’re out and about the streets of Chicago, you might just see us and win some gold! GOLD! Er… cash.
