I was once told crime does not pay.

Bad advice that I took up.

Pretty sure someone will dig the coffin up and melt out the gold

No taste, in life or death.

Not enough gold on the coffin to make it worthwhile digging up. The plating is only microns thick.

Most of that $30,000 would be the directors cut.
Funeral Directors are very strong believers in the old maxims; 'You can't take it with you' and 'When it comes to charging, more is better'.

Would this "Off in style" be using the Royal "OFF" as in, it's 'way past it's use-by date?

Or perhaps, the OTHER Royal: "OFF with his head" type of 'off'?

"Gone away" Joe... as in "Take off"

PS I bet he doesn't really appreciate the luxury of his last accomodation... be it gold or even if it was a cardboard box.

The language has changed since Feb 1952 when King George IV was last around.

I'm still trying to catch up and learn the newer words invented since then.
