Thieves Make Off With Canadian $1 Million Gold Coin That Was Displayed in German Museum



BERLIN—A massive gold coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint has been stolen from a museum in Germany.

Police in Berlin say thieves broke into the German capital’s Bode Museum before dawn Monday and made off with the 100-kilogram gold coin worth millions of dollars.

The “Big Maple Leaf” coin, which is three-centimetres thick with a diameter of 53 centimetres, has a portrait of the Queen on one side and maple leaves on the other.

The museum, which has one of the largest coin collections in the world, said on its website that coin has been on loan in its numismatic collection since 2010.

It was issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2007 and it is in the Guinness Book of Records for its purity of 999.99/1000 gold.

    It needs a giant arcade machine to be slotted into

  • Cute.  A one million dollar coin worth more than 4.3 million dollars US.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    Guess nobody took much notice of the forklift as it shunted its way through the museum doors to the car park with its glittering booty!

    They say the best way to get away with stealing is to look like you know what you're doing.  Carrying a clipboard, frowning, walking quickly and so on.

    Perhaps the forklift driver just looked really irritated and pressed for time as he drove through the front wall of the museum, and bluffed the security guard?

    "Was?  Ich bin in Eile!"

    "ahh.... OK.  Bitte fahre fort."  *waves him past*

    Heard of people making away with office equipment by walking in casually and looking official.
