The article linked here is from Canadian Coin News and it states that a group of 483 Celtic gold coins, which were found in an archaeological dig in 1999, were stolen from a museum in Germany last year and police in Berlin have found gold lumps that appear to have been made from melting several of the coins together at a time. Ugh...
