"One of the workers (was) attacking the building's ceiling with a crowbar when gold coins started to rain down on him, followed by sacks of gold." Francois Lange, head of Alexandre Bonnet, a French Champaign producer in Les Riceys, France as told to Agence France Press (AFP) as reported by Yahoo News.

Lange was describing a recent incident in which 497 gold coins fell from the ceiling of a building at the company. The coins were minted between 1851 and 1928 and have a face value of $20 each. They are now worth an estimated $980,000, according to AFP.

Lange will keep half of the money, and split the other half with his workers.
