DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The state is planning to sell pieces of one of its landmarks: the state Capitol’s golden dome.

The Des Moines Register reports that the Capitol Planning Commission is pricing the bricks used in the dome’s original construction at $100 each. The money will go toward renovating monuments around the Capitol complex.

About 1,100 bricks will be available, starting March 1. They’ll be sold with a medallion and a certificate of authenticity. Buyers can find the bricks online and at the tour desk on the ground floor of the Capitol.

The state began the dome’s $10 million renovation last spring. It’s scheduled to be finished this fall.
