LIAOCHENG, CHINA (NBC/ CCTV VIA APTN) - A car salesman was astonished when a customer bought a car for $16,000, and paid all in coins.

The salesman in a car dealership in Shangdong Province said after he made the deal, he asked the unidentified customer how he’d like to pay.

The customer said, “Cash,” and the salesman expected to receive 100,000 Yuan in bills, but the amount was paid in Yuan coins.

He said the customer took a nap while the dealership staff counted the money; he also watched a movie.

Then, the bank could only accept 2,000 coins at a time.

The total weight of the payment: 5 tons.

Eventually, the dealer took half the amount in coins, and the customer paid the rest by credit card.
