I think some users are purposefully understating the value for dramatic effect. They can't all be hoards of gold coins people but that doesn't mean they're still not impressive and valuable!

You bet, I swear you could say the sky is blue on ATS and some snarky basement dwelling armchair troll would disagree and say the sky was red.

This brings up an interesting thought--If all of us who died withdrew all of our money and then threw it in the ground with our bodies, wouldn't that keep inflation in check?

I'm amazed!!

I get excited when brits find coin hoards with a metal detector, this is on a whole other level!

This is second only to the Goonies finding One-Eyed Willie's ship of course.

I let your comment slide until today giving you a chance to amend it, I see you haven't.
Name calling isn't very grown up of you and as an ATS member you should know better.
I'd like an apology if that comment was aimed at me.
We are all entitled to an opinion whether it agrees with your own or not.

How many people would like to own a 2000 year old coin, sell them on ebay for $5 a pop and you are looking at a goldmine there.


Why trade something of value for some worthless dollars?


99% of consumption boils down to doing exactly that.
