The motivation for pulp-novel pirates, mines all across South America in the 1500s, and deep-sea salvagers everywhere, the silver Spanish Dollar is ubiquitous.
You never know where you might find a bunch of silver. This Redditor’s friend bought a house in 2011 that had a big save in the basement. Sounds like the ideal spot to find some hidden precious metals, right? Nope — the safe was empty.
Fast forward two years and one plumbing project later, and the homeowner found over $2,000 worth of silver coins stashed in between the joists. It just goes to show that you never know where somebody might have stopped to stash some of their valuables. Like a squirrel, plenty of people have buried their treasures and forgot where they left it. Who knows what that might grow into?
