I would melt it into ingots and hide them. When the fiat currency collapses, gold will be extremely valuable.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

It reeks of an inside deal.
Berlin Police should check all vending machines that take 100kg coins.
