A man made a down payment for an apartment in Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi province with 100, 000 one-yuan coins recently.

The coins were all wrapped in kraft paper, with fifty in a roll and ten rolls in a bunch. The sales assistant had to ask over ten security guards to help unload the money from the mini-van which shipped them here.

“We were all just astonished,” said one employee at the sales department.

Mr. Huang, the buyer was from the remote southeastern Fujian province. Currently, he was doing a business with the local bus company, from where he got all the coins and transferred them directly to the land sales office.

Mr. Huang also wrote a guarantee, promising that if the number of the coins was not correct or if there were fake coins, he would take the responsibility.

The coins were finally deposited in five banks.
