California Couple Finds 10 Million In Gold

The coins, in $5, $10 and $20 denominations, are dated from 1847 to 1894. Most were minted in San Francisco.

A husband and wife are reveling in their good fortune after finding $10 million in rare gold coins buried on their property in Northern California.

The gold country discovery is thought to be the largest of its kind in U.S. history, according to David Hall, co-founder of Professional Coin Grading Service, which authenticated the find.

“It’s quite a story. People were walking along on their property in Northern California, noticed something, began digging and they found cans of gold coins,” Hall said.

“It should have happened to you and me.”
