Saddle Ridge Hoard: Buried gold coin stash 'worth $10m'

26 February 2014 Last updated at 21:58 GMT

A California couple found a stash of gold coins buried on their property last year valued at as much as $10m (£6m), rare coin dealers have said.

The 1,427 coins, which date from 1847-1894, were never circulated and are in mint condition.

The unnamed couple found them buried in rusting metal cans under a tree while on a walk last April.

Claudia Redmond reports.
