Kentucky hoarding collection of gold coins discovered in a corn field

Coin collectors rejoiced after gold struck in a Kentucky cornfield last month, literally.

More than 800 Civil War-era gold coins have been unearthed after being buried more than 150 years ago.

Part of what makes this set a rare find is that there weren’t many gold coins made during the Civil War, Bird Saylor, president of the Louisville Money Exchange, told USA Today.

It wasn’t unusual for people to bury their money in times of war to keep it safe, Saylor said, but what might make these coins sell for a premium is all the mystery surrounding their discovery.
