A couple from northern California were walking their dog when they discovered $10million in gold coins.
The unnamed couple found 1,427 rare, mint-condition gold coins buried in the shadow of an old tree on their property , NBC News reported.
Although the face value of the gold pieces only adds up to about $27,000, some of them are so rare that coin experts say they could fetch nearly $1 million apiece.
"I don't like to say once-in-a-lifetime for anything, but you don't get to handle a treasure like this, ever,” veteran numismatist Don Kagin told the news network.
