SHENYANG, CHINA – With saving some coins in piggy bank, all of us have tried to buy something special in our childhood and many of us do that till now.
Same happened when a man in North east China, decided to pay for his new 51,800 Yuan car using just coins.
It took 10 members of staff at the car dealership in Liaoning province over an hour to unload and stack the coins, which weighed four tonnes, from the back of a lorry.
The man reportedly works at a petrol station and explained that he collected the coins from buses that stopped to refuel. He decided to use them to save up for a new vehicle.
The man, who has not been named, used 1,320 bundles of coins wrapped in brown paper to pay for the car.
As well as the coins, piles of notes worth 20,000 Yuan were also used in the sale.
Local banks said that the car dealership would have to make special arrangements for the money to be processed and that there would be a handling charge.
It’s not the first time someone has decided to pay a hefty sum by using the heavier version of money. According to Chinese media, in March a Fujian man made a down payment on a new apartment in the capital of Shaanxi Province in central China with 100,000 one-yuan coins.
