"The coin was stolen the previous evening, it's gone," historical center representative Markus Farr said.

"In light of the data we have so far we trust that the cheat, perhaps hoodlums, tore open a window in the back of the exhibition hall alongside the railroad tracks," police representative Winfrid Wenzel said. "They then figured out how to enter the building and went to the coin presentation. 

"The coin was secured with shot confirmation glass inside the building. That much I can state," Wenzel included. 

"Neither I nor the Bode Museum can broadly expound with respect to faculty inside the building, the alert framework or security establishments." 

The Bode Museum has one of the world's biggest mint piece accumulations with more than 540,000 things.
