Last fall, we embarked on our latest adventure in investment journalism: We bought a gold coin.

On today's show, we sell that coin, and find out whether we made or lost money (the question is more complicated than it sounds).

And we try to figure out whether we're in the middle of a gold bubble.

For more, see our series on gold and the meaning of money.
