The Shenzhen-based China Economic Daily published what it described as the world's first gold newspaper, Xinhua reported. According to the agency the paper published two editions, one of which uses 500 grams of gold and costs US$8,100, and a cheaper version which uses 200 grams of gold and costs US$3,500. The standard price for a more down-to-earth newspaper in China is RMB1, or about US$0.12. The paper's editors said the gold publication, headlined "China's Flourishing Period", was intended to celebrate the achievements of the last 10 sessions of China's top legislative body, the National People's Congress.
