Even if they are of low value, coins are still legal tender. A Chinese man took full advantage of this fact recently.

According to upi.com, the unnamed man paid for a brand new BMW worth $11,000 entirely with coins.

A car dealership in Putian City, Fujian Province, had to close on the afternoon of 17 December so its employees could count the huge number of coins.

A video of the painstaking counting process has gone viral.

The dealership's owner said the man had apparently saved the coins over a period of time before finally deciding to buy a car.

His saving effort paid off handsomely as he drove off with his new acquisition. This isn't the first time a Chinese person has bought a car using coins.

In 2015, another man paid for his car worth $14,000 with coins totaling a whopping 666,000.
