A horde of ancient Roman era gold coins dating back to circa 100 BC was stolen from a museum in southern Germany on Tuesday.  In the beautiful Bavarian state of Germany,  authorities with the state police announced that a horde of gold Celtic coins was stolen from the Celtic and Roman Museum in Manching.

In 1999, 483 gold coins were discovered during an archeological excavation of an ancient settlement in Manching.  The discovery is considered one of the largest in the 20th century.  Bavarian authorities estimate that the value of the coins could be in the millions of pounds.
