National Tax and Customs Administration of Hungary (NTCA) officials found a valuable coin in a parcel, coming from the United States.
According to their press release, the shipment was labelled as low value. But, during the checkout, NTCA officers realised it was too heavy. After opening its package, they found a gold coin weighing 41 grammes. Thus, they asked the Ministry of Construction and Transport’s art supervision department. In the answer, the department cleared that the face value of the coin is ten rubbles and depicts Russian tsarina Catherine the Great. Made of pure gold, the coin’s real value is around HUF 3 million (EUR 8,000). As a result, the officials of NTCA reported the case to the police as budget fraud, nav.hu wrote
