Two brother have found gold while building a hut in France. The gold has an estimated value of $60,000NZD.
The boys, both about 10 years old, found the gold bars in their attic after using old bed sheets.
The bedding belonged to their late grandmother. When they took the sheets the gold bars just fell out onto the ground.
Out of curiosity, the boys’ father contacted a local auctioneer, Philippe Rouillac, who valued the gold bars.
It turns out that the bars were purchased by the grandmother in 1967 and even come with a proof of purchase.
