Interviewer: David Lisot, CoinWeek.com……
It has been called the greatest buried treasure ever found in the United States.
More than 1400 gold coins were unearthed by a couple walking their dog at an undisclosed location in northern California. The coins they uncovered have been valued at greater than $10 million dollars.
The first coin to be sold was auctioned at a live event held at the old San Francisco Mint building with the proceeds being donated to the San Francisco Museum & Historical Society.
The remainder of the coins are being sold by Kagin’s and on Amazon.com.
Hear from the people involved with the treasure as they tell the story of this historic find and watch as a room full of people bid for the first coin to be sold.
