Ancient Celtic Coins Found in Cornfield with Metal Detector

A teacher who enjoys metal detecting as a "meditative hobby" discovered a treasure trove of ancient Celtic coins in a cornfield in the southern Dutch city of Maastricht.

"It’s exciting, like a little boy’s dream," Paul Curfs said after his discovery was made public.

Curfs experienced a fair amount of luck too, considering he was about to quit for the day when he heard the hit. The 70 silver and 39 gold coins found were struck in the middle of the first century B.C., according to archaeologists.

For the full story and photo of the coins, read the embedded article below.

Soon those Ancient Celtic Coins will be available for sale to public. If Ancient Celtic Coins are on sale, where I can buy them?
