Snidely It was just one coin!

Gold Coin That Weighs 220 Pounds Somehow Stolen

Thieves kept their eyes on the target in the early hours of Monday morning when they somehow circumvented a German museum's security system and made off with just one coin.

But it's not just any old coin; the so-called "big maple leaf" Canadian coin is pure 24-carat gold, big and heavy, and valued at around $4 million, reports the BBC.

Looks like a 50lb weight you'd find at a gym.

Yeah, it's not an inside job...

Would give a whole new meaning to Gold's gym! The weights for the bar are usually 45lbs, this almost 5X the weight. I'm sure it was just another casual stroll for all these he-man thieves wandering around now. I also think there was at a minimum inside help, if not done 100% by insiders. Just like the guy that supposedly stumbled upon and then wandered off with 86lbs of gold a few months ago.
