If colored and coated metalically to look like real instead of plastic, I think you'd have a clever idea that would sell well.

But it gives a good idea of what 3D printing can do ^^
I know it would look better with paint

I think a coat of dark bronze covered lightly with gold while still wet might produce some interesting texture in a simple way.

Neat. Would be a bonus if the mouth could be sculpted to be able to hold keys or gold coins.
