A pyramid from a million cents — in the Guinness Book of World Records!
We are glad to announce that the pyramid from a million cents, constructed at the Money Museum, has been officially recognised as the largest in the world and has been recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records! The pyramid contains as many as 1,000,935 (one million nine hundred and thirty five) Lithuanian 1 cent coins, its height is 1,160 mm, weight — as much as 831 kg! The authors, initiators of the idea, and the builders are Vytautas Jakštas and Domas Jokubauskis. It took almost five years for two residents of Vilnius, former students of physics who are currently working on Doctor’s theses, to realise this idea; the collecting of the coins was the most time-consuming. The coin pyramid was built in the Money Museum on 11–29 November 2014. A few dozen volunteers helped the idea organisers construct them into the pyramid. This is one of the few world records in Lithuania that you can come and see at our Money Museum. Don’t miss this chance.
