Swiss Bank Deposit Safe for Sale with 8 Million Coins Inside


Remember Scrooge McDuck and how he swims and dives in a sea of coins in his safe? Well, that could be you, if you’ve got enough cash to buy this bank deposit safe, which comes complete with 8 million Swiss five-cent coins.

Built in 1912, the steel and brass safe is currently located in Basel, Switzerland. The actual room itself is up for grabs, along with all 1619 safe deposit boxes, and as a bonus of sorts, it will come with coins that weigh fifteen tons for your ogling and swimming pleasure.

“This is the original bank safe from the former “Schweizer Volksbank” and known to be one of the finest Swiss piece of craftwork in the early 20th Century. It is in very good shape and still usable as a bank deposit safe.”

When (or if) someone buys it, the entire safe, along with its contents, will be moved and installed anywhere in the world. Neat-o.

This gives new meaning to the phrases “drowning in riches” and “neck-deep in money.”
