Tragic that they weren’t caught trying to buy a Ferrari with it.


#3

From a Ferrari vending machine


#4

Bruce Wayne would like to express his gratitude to the Berlin police.


#5

At 3.9 million it sure ain’t pocket change.


#6

Is it considered a Looney or a Tooney?

A Milliooney?


#7

A Granny?


#8

So, where do you suppose Trump is hiding it?


#9

Wait, it’s only a million Canadian dollars?


#10
Guinness Book of World Records named it the world's largest coin,

Maybe the biggest metal coin, but Rai stones are bigger.


#11

Surely manhole cover sized. It’s not a long cylinder.


#12

A manhole COVER isn’t a cylinder, well its a very thin one.

The manhole itself is a cylinder shaped hole.


#13

It’s a thing, apparently (although not Ferrari) - I don’t know if you were aware of them or not, but I sure wasn’t!


#14

But the slot is at the top and you have to lug your Milliooney up there.


#15

It looks like a case for your Hot Wheels when you were a kid.


#16

You’re totally right!

#18

You give me a “Milooney”, and I’ll lug it across the Mojave if I have to!


#19

Keep the change.

Btw, an easy movie script here.
