    Four men have gone on trial at Berlin's regional court after being suspected of stealing a 220-pound solid gold coin from the Bode Museum back on March 27, 2017. Billed as the world's largest by the Canadian Royal Mint, the 100kg "Big Maple Leaf" currently has a market value of nearly five million USD. Surrounding the '17 heist, Arnet reported that the accused suspects ostensibly broke through the museum's second-floor window, used tools to smash a bulletproof cabinet, rolled the coin on a skateboard through the museum, and then placed it inside a wheelbarrow to a getaway car.
