One day, the most ordinary couple, a man and a woman, went for a walk with their dogs along the path into the forest. One of the dogs showed interest in a rather unremarkable pot placed near a tree.
The jug was almost half immersed in clay. The owners of the animal decided to investigate the find and pulled it out of the clay. The object turned out to be quite heavy, but was small in size.
Imagine the surprise in their eyes when they realized that this was not an ordinary fish can thrown into the garbage, but a barrel, the contents of which remained a mystery.
Shaking the box a little, they heard a click.
The couple took it home to open it later with a special tool. And the find was simply stunning. It was full of some coins.
After such a unique find, the couple immediately went in search of a metal detector. Fortunately, they quickly found a rental office for such equipment.
They took him to where they had just walked their animals. Soon they unearthed two more such jars there, and they were all filled with these coins.
The items date from the end of the 19th century. Almost all of them were based on gold, but the weight of the find was not taken into account in the assessment.
Some coins were valued at five zeros. After many interviews and signing stacks of papers, the couple has made over $10 million rich.
Their results sometimes have significant value not only for a people or culture, but also for countries and even for the whole world.
An ordinary coin of the 19th century can shed light on certain moments in history, minting technologies or trade relations between different peoples, cities and states.
