Bank Vault Complete With 8 Million Coins Goes Up For Sale

"The safe, complete with eight million Swiss five-cent coins worth £270,000, is currently located in Basel but can be removed and replaced anywhere in the world.

It was built in 1912 and features 1,619 deposit boxes with all keys available. The boxes and lockers were handmade from steel and brass.

The vault is being sold by the Generation Basic Income Initiative, who campaign for a basic income for each Swiss citizen on a monthly basis.

In October, they placed eight million five-centime pieces into the bank vault, one for each citizen in Switzerland, before dumping the 15 tons of money in front of the parliament building in Bern.
Now the vault and its contents are up for sale with the price negotiable on application."
