Just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day - two construction workers in Holland have discovered a real-life “pot o’ gold.”
The workers from water company Oasen made the stunning find when they were laying pipes in the new town of Hoef and Haag in the province of Utrecht, LiveScience reports.
During the construction work, they dug up a medieval cooking pot that contained 12 gold and 462 silver coins.
It's unclear at this point who will keep the coins.
After finding the pot "it literally and figuratively rained coins," the company explained, in a press release translated via Google Translate.
When the utility workers called in their boss, he reported the discovery to the archaeology hotline for Landschap Erfgoed Utrecht (Landscape Heritage Utrecht).
