London, Feb 26: A couple from northern California discovered 10 million dollars in gold coins while walking their dog.
The unnamed couple found 1,427 rare, mint-condition gold coins buried in the shadow of an old tree on their property in Gold County, NBC News reported.
Almost all of the coins, which date between 1847 and 1894, are in uncirculated, mint condition, David Hall, co-founder of Professional Coin Grading Service of Santa Ana, who authenticated the hoard, said.
Although the face value of the gold pieces only adds up to about 27,000 dollars, some of them are so rare that coin experts say they could fetch nearly 1 million dollars apiece. (ANI)
