Treasure hunter Chris Kutler discovered a haul of ancient gold coins believed to be from 1,500 years ago that was buried with an Anglo-Saxon King, the Daily Mail reported.

After four days of searching, the 54-year-old found the coins in a field in Chelmsford, Essex.

 

The find has been sent to the British Museum for analysis. It is reportedly worth £10,000.

Even more extraordinary, Kutler found rare Anglo-Saxon coins at the very same site 18 years ago. He decided to go back to the site when he read an article that alluded to the fact there could be more.

"It is kind of the Holy Grail of metal detectoring. It was an incredible feeling to find the coins," Kutler told the Daily Mail.

Adding, "It was the best feeling in the world, especially after four days of hard work."

The coins are said to be from the Dark Ages (620-640AD approximately) and are thought to be a symbol of high status.
