Rare $3 gold coin worth $4 MILLION goes on auction... and it was discovered in an old book


A $3 cold coin is expected to fetch $4 million when it goes up for auction next month. 

The 1870-S is one of just two ever made and is one of the rarest coins in US history. 

It was discovered in a San Francisco bookshop in 1997 by a European tourist, who found it glued to the inside pages of a souvenir book.
