Berlin is home to some truly amazing stories and history. If you are looking to hear an exciting story of true crime, listen here for the story of the Berlin Coin Heist. The Bode museum was home to the Maple Leaf, a massive gold coin from Canada, roughly the diameter of a car tire and holding a Guinness world record for the highest purity, and the subject of this story.
Standing on the paved path along the spree, just south of Monbijou Park, you’ll usually find tourists making their way to Museum Island and people having lunch and coffee while enjoying the view. But the location is also the site of one of Berlin’s most notorious heists - one involving a 220-pound gold coin, a rare Armani jacket, and an infamous crime family.
The Bode Museum is found on Museum Island in Berlin’s Mitte district. The location can be reached by train with the nearest station Berlin Berlin Friedrichstrasse.
