I remember this when I was a kid. Now I think that this is funny. materials ism stinks. THis lady sounds like a witch!

Concept similar to “The Picture of Dorian Gray” by G. B. Shaw. Wealthy philanthropic woman with an obsession for gold commissions an artist to create a portrait to be stamped on a series of gold coins she is having made of her accumulated gold items. Two flashbacks demonstrate the extent to which she will go to acquire gold, even at the expense of her closest friends. While the original portrait is a flattering reflection of her outer image, the image on the coins are a reflection of her ‘true self’. She dies of shock at the end.

Miriam meets many of the criteria for Antisocial Personality Disorder.
