Masked robbers steal $4 million in rare coins

The Miami-Herald reports Masked robbers steal $4 million in rare coins at the FUN show.

A witness told police she saw the Mitsubishi pull into the hotel ahead of her, blocking her from the entrance. Three men wearing dark hooded shirts and surgical masks got out, one holding the victim at knifepoint. He ordered the coin custodian, who worked for a Minnesota man that owned the valuables, to open the sport utility vehicle and slashed its back tire.

The dealer's name was not given in the report.

UPDATE: The Orlando-Sentinal has better coverage including a photo of one of the coins.
