824 Ancient Gold Coins Found with a Metal Detector

Imagine swinging your detector, getting a strong, crisp signal and digging a broken pottery jar filled with 824 gold coins from around 40BC to 15AD!!! I think I'd damn near faint...

Check out the BBC article.

It's nice to know treasures like that are still out there. Now I just need to find one. :)

Nice find! Don't know how much I'd pay for a coin dated 40BC tho. ;)
