A Californian couple who found $10 million of gold coins whilst walking the dog may not have been so lucky after all. The hoard may have been stolen from the U.S. mint in 1900 and subsequently may be the legal property of the U.S. government. The find which included mostly uncirculated coins with a total face value of $27,000 matches the amount stolen from the San Francisco Mint in 1900.
