Buried treasure is now being auctioned
May 29 , 2014
A California couple found nearly $11 million worth of gold coins while walking their dog and the coins from the 1800s have begun being auctioned off. Several of them are being sold on Amazon and Kagins and the anonymous couple is keeping a few as well, according to media reports.
Media reports note that the couple plans on using the money for paying pills and donating some to charities.
It's not clear as to where the coins came from and there are a few that have threatened to sue, claiming that the coins belonged to their relatives. However, federal officials mentioned that none of them have proven to be genuine so far.
