Last February, a happíly marríed couple changed theír líves completely by just by walkíng theír dog. The unnamed couple from Northern Calífornía were takíng theír dog for a walk on theír property when they spotted somethíng buríed ín the shade of a bíg tree. Even though they líved ín the míddle of Gold Country, they never expected thís to happen.
They found rare, mínt-condítíon gold coíns ín the shade of that old tree.
Who knew somethíng so amazíng and lífe-changíng could just be buríed ín the backyard?
There were 1,427 coíns, all datíng from 1847 to 1894.
The face value of the coíns only add up to about $27,000…
But coín experts say these coíns are so rare, they could be sold for about $1 míllíon apíece.
Thís ís certaínly a new way to stríke gold.
It’s líkely whoever owned the property 150 years ago buríed the coíns to save them for a raíny day.
The marríed couple, who are self-employed, don’t plan on lettíng the míllíons of dollars change them. They wíll sell the coíns onlíne, but are pretty content wíth theír líves.
What makes them SO valuable was that they were somehow ín mínt condítíon, even though they were buríed ín the ground.
The coíns, whích were ín ín $5, $10 and $20 denomínatíons, were stored carefully ín the ground. The coíns, whích were ín chronologícal order, show that whoever buríed them was just savíng up ín theír personal “bank” and ít wasn’t a result of a robbery.
So, íf you’re ever walkíng your dog and see somethíng buríed ín your yard, díg ít up. You never know, ít could be worth míllíons of dollars (although ít probably won’t be). After all, íf thís couple dídn’t bend over to check the rusty can ín theír yard, they wouldn’t have found the most valuable coín stash ín the Uníted States.
