A car dealership in the Jiangsu Province in China, on Saturday morning local time received a visit from a man who was buying two cars - one as a gift to his wife and one for himself.
It should not be a problem, thought the car salesman, but then came the surprise.
The man wanted to pay the full amount in coins.
According to local media it took 30 people six hours to count the 200 bags of coins, which together paid the bill, a sum equivalent of 20,000 British pounds.
The car dealer did not use weights to count the coins.
Why the buyer came with 200 sacks of coins is unknown, but the Chinese bank had refused him to exchange them.
The car dealer on the other hand was happy to receive the coins.
In addition, the man thought it would be romantic to pay with coins, since he was going to buy a car as a gift to his wife, reports the news agency Newsflare.
