Monday, March 28th, 2017, Berlin police report the theft of a rare, gold coin from the Bode Museum. The estimated value of this coin, minted in 2007 by the Royal Canadian Mint, is $4 million due to the extreme purity of the gold. The coin, called the "Big Maple Leaf" features Queen Elizabeth II, and was on loan to the Bode at the time it was stolen. (Reuters; Read more here.)

Police believe the thief or thieves entered through a window near the back by the train tracks with help from a ladder. Not much else is being disclosed at this time, as the investigation is ongoing.

The Bode Museum houses one of the worlds largest coin collections, and was noted in detail in The Checkpoint, Berlin Detective Series, Book I, Exposed: The Education of Sarah Brown. It is the location of a date Sarah goes on with Dutch Lothario, Paul Christiansen, a place he personally loves because of his deep appreciation for art. Strange that a coin measuring 53 centimeters in diameter, that was housed inside bullet-proof glass, could be stolen right out from under security cameras, and museum personnel. It's sure that police will root out the thief(ves) soon, recover the coin, restore good faith with Canada, and will toss the criminal(s) in prison where they belong.
