Back in 1988 a millionaire named Forrest Fenn decided to hide his valuable possessions somewhere in the wild. He was sick and he thought his treasure would make for an excellent legacy. So, Fenn buried rare coins, gold nuggets, gemstones and jewelry in a bronze chest and placed inside it a jar that contained his autobiography. The man survived his illness, so he buried his treasure only several years ago, when he was nearly 80 years old.
Up until present days the treasure chest, which is thought to hold between $1 and $3 million in USD, is still hidden. Fenn has released a number of clues regarding its whereabouts, the biggest one of them is a poem that gives up 9 clues. One of the biggest clues he gave the public is the one that states the chest is hidden somewhere in the Rocky Mountains north of New Mexico’s capital city Santa Fae in the US.
Countless people have undergone law trouble and physical pains in order to find the chest. However, it still remains hidden even nowadays.
