In preparation for the olympics, there was a segment on a news broadcast here in Israel telling the story of the City of London (not to be confused with London). (The segment itself isn't of Israeli origin so others may have seen it as well.)

In at least 2 points, they talked about its commerce/wealth and used gold coin icons to visualize it.

Except that it wasn't just any gold coin. It was the Bitcoin icon.

I thought it was pretty cool.

That's the one, and it was indeed presented on a major TV channel (not on prime time though).
