3 Year Old Finds £2.5 Million In Gold With Metal Detector - Archive


A three-year-old boy using a metal detector for the first time has unearthed a gold pendant estimated to be worth over £2.5m.


James Hyatt made the discovery while out with his father and grandfather in Hockley, Essex.

He had only been scanning the soil for a matter of minutes when it started beeping.

The trio, from Billericay, started digging and just eight inches deep, they saw a glint and found what they now know to be a 500-year-old gold pendant.
