Man in China pays $136,000 BMW... with coins!

By ,

A man in Northeast China recently bought a brand new BMW worth 680,000 yuan (approx. $136,400 CAD) mostly with rolls of coins, CCTV News reported after learning about the purchase via Liaoshen Evening News.

Apparently, the coins weighed four tons and piled up for over four metres. More than 10 employees teamed up to move all of them into the store in over an hour. 

But where did that money come from? You see, the gas station where the buyer works is often visited by buses, and their drivers usually pay with coins. However, there are no banks nearby to deposit them. The man stacked the coins for three months and then used them to buy a car for the company.
