A young 16-year-old enjoying her holiday has found a 500g gold bar while swimming in a lake in Germany.

The gold bar is believed to be worth $24,000.

She discovered the precious metal at about 2 metres deep near the shore of Bavaria’s Koenigssee lake on Friday.

She handed it into the police. They are now investigating where it came from and who owned it.

Police divers checked the area for more gold on Tuesday but found nothing

There are rumours of Nazi gold supposedly lost in that lake, near Germany’s southern border with Austria. However, investigators do not believe the find is connected to the Nazi era.
