World's big robbery: Gold coin of 100 kg stolen from Berlin museum
This can be said big 21st century heist as thieves in Berlin stole the gold coin worth $5 million from museum. The museum said on its website the coin was issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2007 and was featured in the Guinness Book of Records for its "unmatched" degree of purity. The coin, with a diameter of 53 centimetres and 3 centimetres thick, was loaned to the Bode Museum in December 2010. Police said it was probably stolen by a group of thieves who entered the museum undetected through a window, possibly with the help of a ladder. The Bode Museum has one of the world's largest coin collections with more than 540,000 items.
