Last February, a happily married couple changed their lives completely by just by walking their dog. The unnamed couple from Northern California were taking their dog for a walk on their property when they spotted something buried in the shade of a big tree. Even though they lived in the middle of Gold Country, they never expected this to happen.
They found rare, mint-condition gold coins in the shade of that old tree.
Who knew something so amazing and life-changing could just be buried in the backyard?
There were 1,427 coins, all dating from 1847 to 1894.
The face value of the coins only add up to about $27,000…
But coin experts say these coins are so rare, they could be sold for about $1 million apiece.
This is certainly a new way to strike gold.
It”s likely whoever owned the property 150 years ago buried the coins to save them for a rainy day.
The married couple, who are self-employed, don”t plan on letting the millions of dollars change them. They will sell the coins online, but are pretty content with their lives.
What makes them SO valuable was that they were somehow in mint condition, even though they were buried in the ground.
The coins, which were in in $5, $10 and $20 denominations, were stored carefully in the ground. The coins, which were in chronological order, show that whoever buried them was just saving up in their personal bank and it wasnt a result of a robbery. So, if you”re ever walking your dog and see something buried in your yard, dig it up. You never know, it could be worth millions of dollars (although it probably won”t be). After all, if this couple didn”t bend over to check the rusty can in their yard, they wouldn”t have found the most valuable coin stash in the United States. Source: Daily Mail
