Couple Who Found $10 Million in Gold Coins Will Likely Keep The Loot

It looks like the lucky California couple who found $10 million worth of 19th-century gold coins will get to keep their loot, after all.Not long after it became public last month that the unnamed couple had found the coins on their property, news outlets dug up an old newspaper clip showing a suspiciously similar amount of coins had been stolen from the San Francisco branch of the U.S. Mint circa 1900. That led to speculation the government might stake a claim to the money. Additional records reviewed by TIME show the branch did indeed have coins go missing that year.By Katy Steinmetz /San Francisco @katysteinmetzMarch 05, 2014 http://nation.time.com Read More
