Dealership's Worst Nightmare: Man Buys Car With Coins
It took ten dealership employees in China over an hour to move over four tons of coins into the store. Those coins, totalling $106,480, were payment for a new company car.
The buyer, surnamed Gan, said that busses that stopped to refuel at the gas station where he works usually paid in coins. Given that there is no bank in the vicinity, he decided to collect and store the coins.
“We have been receiving the coins for nearly three months. As our station is in the suburb, there are very few banks. Thus, we did not deposit and decided to use them to buy a car for our company,” he explained.
