An anonymous couple from California made an incredible discovery at their very own backyard. According to the lucky couple who are both 40-year-old and self-employed they were taking a walk with their dog when they suddenly stumbled upon 8 buried rusty cans filled with extremely rare coins. The coins which have immense numismatic value were dated from 1847 to 1894 and are worth of $10 million.
Based on the opinion of the experienced numismatist Don Kagin who represents the couple, the discovery of 1,427 extremely rare coins is probably the biggest one in American history up to date. The happy couple decided to remain anonymous and not disclose any information about where exactly the coins were discovered in order to prevent another frantic Gold Rush of prospectors carrying metal detectors to their property.
The couple plans to sell most of the coins on Amazon and use the money to pay their bills as well as donate some of the profit to local charities in California.
