We’ve all thought about it – what if I ever found a buried treasure and it held my retirement money? Well, maybe not hard cold cash, but valuables like jewels, coins, crowns and so on! Yeah, it doesn’t usually happen to the average Joe and Jane, but some lucky folks have found seriously coveted troves throughout history.
Here are 3 of the most prized treasure troves ever to have surfaced:
- The Cuerdale Hoard
With a value of close to $3.2 million, the Cuerdale Hoard was dug up by a group of workmen back in 1840. The lead box contained one of the biggest collections of Viking treasures ever found with good like silver coins, jewelry and even silver ingots.
- The Hoxne Hoard
In 1992, a guy looking for his lost hammer accidentally bumped into the Hoxne Hoard. Valued in close to $3.8 million, this oak chest treasure held silver spoons, gold jewelry and coins that dated back to the 4th or 5th century CE.
- The Staffordshire Hoard
Fairly recently, in 2009, a guy with a metal detector struck it lucky when he found the $4.1 million Staffordshire Hoard. A pretty stunning treasure to stumble upon: a hoard guarding over 3500 items, including military objects, religious pieces and decorative objects.
