SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Gold coins from one of the largest finds in U.S. history were possibly from a heist at the San Francisco Mint at the turn of the 20th century.

Last week it was announced that a couple found nearly 1,500 gold coins dated from 1847 to 1894, worth an estimated $10 million on their Sierra Foothills property, buried in metal cans.

The coins were in perfect condition, and in chronological order. One of the coins was also missing the words “In God We Trust,” which could indicate the coin was kept in the mint, and out of circulation, but officials have not confirmed that.
