Stolen Coins – Frankfurt Airport

2021-03-10 23:26 | IAPN Webmaster (Administrator)

We would like to inform you that a series of coin shipments sent from Switzerland to Germany, all going through customs at Frankfurt Airport, have been stolen.

Four shipments were sent by Registered Mail on 2 March 2021 and all went through customs at Frankfurt Airport on 6 March. In each case the, as yet unknown culprit, removed the sticker with the attached documentation, opened the parcel, and removed the inner package with the coins. The empty parcels were then returned to the Post to be distributed to their addressees, all in differing German cities.

The fact that the shipments were delivered to different German addresses, as well as the fact that we had no other problems with any other shipments during this period, makes it clear that the theft had to have happened after the parcels were exported from Switzerland, most likely in the sorting center at the Frankfurt airport.

The German police authorities are currently investigating this series of thefts.

Should you see or be offered any of the coins listed below, please let us know and we will contact the authorities.
