California Couple Finds $10 Million in Gold Coins on Their Gold Country Property

For decades, people have visited California’s Gold Country with the hopes of finding an unclaimed buried treasure worth millions. But one Northern California couple didn’t even have to go that far from home to strike it rich. Last year, a Sierra Nevada husband and wife stumbled upon about $10 million worth of rare, minted gold in their own back yard, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The pair, who have chosen to remain anonymous, were out walking their dog on their property when they noticed a rusted canister poking out of the ground under a shade tree. They dug the canister out with a stick, and inside, found a batch of disks caked in dirt. When they cleaned off the dirt, they realized they had stumbled upon a treasure trove.
