Prince was usually associated with purple, but it seems that gold might have been his favorite, since he had a plethora of gold bars in his possession.
Prince was not only one of the best musicians of all time, but also a prolific real estate investor, according to the inventory file released by Carver County District Court, reported on by the Star Tribune. Gold was among his favorite investment assets.
According to estate documents, before his death, Prince was the owner of an estimated $25.4 million worth of real estate (and other personal property) and 67 10-ounce gold bars, The Huffington Post reports.
The gold bars have been estimated to be worth of a combined $836,166.70, as gold is currently going for approximately $1,180 an ounce.
The legendary singer left behind also assets such as the iconic “Purple Rain” and “Graffiti Bridge” motorcycles as well as unreleased recordings and videos, musical instruments, jewellery and household furnishings.
So far, The Bremer Trust, the special administrator going through Prince’s estate, hasn’t determined the full value of Prince’s fortune.
Prince died at the age of 57, on April 21, 2016, after an accidental overdose and didn’t left behind any will.
