Company Description

In 1996, as the people of Thailand commemorated their popular king’s 50th year of rule, a mere 700 24k gold plated Leica “King of Thailand” edition M6 cameras were produced. A much-endeared monarch to the Thai nation, King Bhumiphol Adulyadej was an artistic monarch known for his painting, sculpture, and photography. #LEICAGOLD is a 1996 Leica M6 Gold ’King of Thailand’ Camera in Condition ‘A’ and is a beautiful, rare edition of what might be Leica’s most esteemed 35mm camera.

Key Deal Facts

“Very simply, the Leica M6 is the most beautifully engineered, most ruggedly built, quietist, sharpest-oh hell, sexiest-camera I’ve ever held in my hands.”
— PHOTOGRAPHER FRANK VAN RIPER IN THE WASHINGTON POST | JUNE 2001
