Our favorite movies allow us to enter a fantasy world where we feel like we too can be apart of it, but have you ever considered owning a piece of your favorite movie? Some of the most memorable movie scenes define American culture and will forever be classics, and the price tags on these iconic items are also down in history as some of the most expensive pieces of American culture. Marilyn Monroe's famous white dress worn on the subway grate is the most expensive movie costume ever sold at auction, and James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 from the movie Goldfinger is the most expensive movie memorabilia item ever sold in an auction. You won’t believe the prices on some of these items–and we thought some of these over the top Southern sorority houses were expensive. The Coinage team rounded up the five most expensive pieces of movie memorabilia ever to sell in an auction.

But in the real world, beloved movie memorabilia can sell for seemingly unreal prices. Here are the reportedly top five priciest pieces of movie memorabilia ever sold. Audiences watched Judy Garland click her ruby red heels together in the 1939 film Wizard of Oz. One of her four pairs of sparkly shoes sold at auction in 2000 for more than $600,000. What a stylish and expensive way to follow the yellow brick road home. In Breakfast at Tiffany's, Audrey Hepburn donned a legendary Givenchy dress while window shopping at the jewelry store in 1961. Estimated to sell for $138,000. London auctioneer's were astounded when the final bid reach over $800,000 in 2006. Steve McQueen raced his Michael Delaney in the 1971 film Le Mans. In 2011, the iconic weight suit was sold in auction for over $900,000. We all looked at subway grates differently after watching Marilyn Monroe in the 1955 classic The Seven Year Itch. Her deep v, white dress was the most expensive movie costume ever sold at auction. Originally owned by Debbie Reynolds, the dress sold in 2011 for more that $1 million. Bond, James Bond, currently holds the title for most expensive piece of movie memorabilia. His Aston Martin DB5, which can be seen in Goldfinger, sold in 2010 for $4.6 million.
