China: Man Buys Car With 660,000 Coins

A Chinese man has paid for his new car using 660,000 coins and 20,000 low value banknotes, it's reported.

The buyer, identified as Mr Gan, handed over the huge haul of small change to a dealership in the northeast city of Shenyang, the Liaoshen Evening News reports. Each coin and note was worth just one yuan ($0.16; 10p), and the hefty sum, weighing four tonnes in total, took up more than 4m (13ft) of floor space within the showroom, the report says.

Mr Gan explains that he paid in cash because he had amassed a huge amount of small denomination coins and notes through the petrol station where he works. "As our station is in the suburbs, there are very few banks. So we didn't deposit the coins and decided to use them to buy a car for our company," he says.

Did his old car break trying to transport his money?

I suspect he had Aldi trolley anxiety so liked to keep a supply of coins in the glove box.
