Coin Worth £3.2m Bearing Queen Elizabeth’s Portrait Stolen

  March 28, 2017 at 6:34 am by

The security team of Berlin’s Bode Museum is in for some sleepless nights, as a Canadian coin worth £3.2m was stolen from an exhibition in the early hours of Monday morning.

Featuring a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on one side, the solid gold coin has a face value of $CAD1million. However, because it is 100kg of pure gold, its gold bullion value is much greater than its face value. The Royal Canadian Mint produced the coin in 2007, and loaned it to the German museum at the end of 2010 to feature in their coin collection.

It is believed thieves broke in through a window to steal the coin.

Let’s hope both the Bode Museum’s insurance policy is current.
