A Golden Discovery
A California couple out walking their dog have stumbled across a buried hoard of rare mint-condition gold coins said to be worth up to US$10m. Nearly all of the 1,427 coins dating from 1847 to 1894 were in uncirculated mint condition, said David Hall, co-founder of Professional Coin Grading Service of Santa Ana, which authenticated them.

One of the largest previous finds of gold coins was $1m worth uncovered by construction workers in Jackson, Tennessee, in 1985.
