In 1996 700 were made to commemorate the 50th, Golden Jubilee Celebration, of the reign of His Majesty King Bhumiphol Adulyadej of Thailand. The body and special 50/2 Summicron are 24-carat gold plated. They were offered for sale for $10,000 each by the Chulalongkorn University Development Foundation, the funds to be used for environmental projects in Thailand. Serial numbers 2176001 to 2176700. As can be seen in the picture below, the camera, wooden presentation case, and the box, are all quite beautifully done.
