A man discovers 100 kilogram of gold in mansion
A man has discovered 100 kilogram of gold in mansion.
An unnamed Frenchman inherited a stately home in Evreux, Normandy, when a member of his family passed, and struck gold - literally - when he came across piles of treasure planted all around the estate, which are estimated to be worth £3 million, according to La Depeche.
The new homeowner found gold coins as well as a box containing the precious metal, which was hidden under furniture and in a whisky box.
And certificates have been found stating the findings were purchased legally in the 1950s and 1960s from the deceased relative.
