You have to wonder why it was made in the first place. Seems a pointless exercise. 
They made just to stick in a museum?? T05

I couldn't believe that story. Very very very poor security. Did I mention, poor security.

If it's a coin museum, imagine the value of the total contents. Did I here you say INSIDE JOB ??

If they bypass the electronic security, what about the second and third systems they didn't know about?

If you had to safeguard that coin (and others), do you think you could do a better job? Your ideas? cheers Pete.
