After being sent to a small French town to wait out the coronavirus lockdown, two kids discovered $100,000 worth of gold at a home of an older relative, local media reported.
Just a few days into the lockdown, which was introduced back in March, the two kids — both around ten years old — found two gold bars wrapped in some old sheets at a house in Vendome, France, which is located about 100 miles from Paris.
They made the discovery while trying to build a fort and scouring through everything they could use in the house, BFM TV.
"They asked their father what they could use. He advised them to take their grandmother's sheets in an unused room. But instead of finding sprigs of lavender between the sheets, as was done before, there were two fairly heavy objects," Vendome auctioneer Philippe Rouillac told BFM.
Each gold bar weighs about one kilogram.
