Five workers in the ancient city of Khans in Uzbekistan have found a 13.5 kg gold bar whilst digging a cesspit. The gold bar is thought to have been minted at the start of the last century and worth between $750,000 and $800,000. The bar has a number of inscriptions and was found in the historic Hamaz region of the city.

Under Uzbek law the workers who found the bar will receive 25% of its value with the remainder going to the state.
