    Begging with negative karma gets those sometimes, along with single gold coins that won't stack. The 'piles' of gold are only worth i GP if you try buy things with them, I may use a couple for deco if they lock down but other than that, they're just an 'oddity'.

    (conjecture and speculation follows which may or may not reflect reality)

    I suspect 65535 (2^16-1) is the largest number the stack-count variables can handle cleanly.

    The game usually puts a cap on the range of stacks at 60000 for nice readability. If something slips through (eg: the begging anti-gold bug mentioned by UOKaiser and Aurelius), the game can get confused in some calculations and flip over the top. Even the "1 gold coin" is the client going "wait, that number doesn't make sense, uh, let's call it '1'".

    My opinion is that its best to dump them - they're more trouble as a something-broken that they're worth as a novelty.
