Samsung didn’t pay Apple $1 billion fine in 5 cents coins

There is a hoax-news going around in internet about Samsung paying Apple the $1 billion fine in 30 truck loads of nickels (5-cent coins).

Although the billion dollar fine is real, 30 dump trucks full of 5-cent coins arriving at Apple headquarters is just a made-up story.

Minting $1 billion worth of nickels would mean 20 billion of the coins. That much of coins don’t even fit in a couple of thousands of trucks and the US Mint wouldn’t be able to fulfill Samsung’s order, if done, in its current capacity.
