7 Million Dollar Carson City Gold Coin and Bullion Treasure Trove Discovery

November 26, 2012 by  
Filed under Gold Coins


The body of Walter Samasko Jr. of Carson City, Nevada was found in his house several months after having succumbed to a heart issue. Being a reclusive nobody even noticed he was gone. Besides being a reclusive, it’s reported Mr. Samasko was also a conspiracy theorist, who distrusted doctors… and apparently banks. Because, officials found a treasure worth 7 million dollars in gold coins and bars stored in several boxes marked “Books” stashed in Samasko’s house and garage. Besides the gold bars officials also found $12000.00 in cash. Some of the gold coins were minted in the 1840s in Mexico, England, Austria and South Africa, according to the Associated Press. The $7 million dollar estimate could climb higher as there is speculation that some of the coins may be collectible. Being that Samasko had no will and there are no known close relatives, officials have settled upon a lucky first cousin who lives in California and apparently attended the funeral of Samasko’s mother way back in 1992. At this time there is no information on how Samasko acquired his wealth, but if you were to get a glimpse at Samasko’s bank account you’d be quite unimpressed as it contained only $200.00 Personally, I bet there may be more gold buried in and around Samasko’s yard. Keeping in mind that Samasko had lived in this same house since the 1960’s. Leave a comment telling me if you believe there may be more treasure buried on the property and if so, where you’d search if you were given permission

    Very cool story and a bit sad.

  2. 999across says:

    Makes sense he would have money buried in the yard or in & around the attic or walls. If he was really paranoid I check refrigerator. That’s one lucky relative.

  3. 21kurt21 says:

    Where’s it at? I’m going there without permission.

    stringfrenzy- Thanks for watching and commenting!

  5. stringfrenzy says:

    Great story. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks mate!

    Sam- I wish I would have started as young as you. A good metal detector would be an Ace 250 brand new 212.00 used 150.00-175.00. An Ace 150 will do the job too. as for digging tools you don’t need anything special. For a hand digger I’d get the treasure wise you can get them from E-bay for like 5.00-10.00 and for bigger tools You can use just about any shovel. I got mine from Home Depot check out some of my videos where im in the woods. You’ll see the shovel I use. Happy hunting!

    Hey Russ I’m a young lad (11) And i Want to be an excavator when i grow up. Would you recommend any Digging tools? And Good cheap land metal detectors?

  9. agmcg81 says:

    Great story :)

  10. Russ Balbirona says:

    All fantastic places to look texasdirtdiggerLK, -Russ

  11. texasdirtdigger LK says:

    I would look around any trees as they are long standing land marks or fence post like the corner of the property. Next for the house if is it on pier and beam I would look there under the house as well there are so many places to look and this is only the beginning. GL & HH

  12. Russ Balbirona says:

    Agreed, the article I read didn’t give any info on how Mr. Samasko gained all that wealth. I’d imagine there is a lot more to this too.

  13. Russ Balbirona says:

    Isn’t it just amazing? How cool would it be to get that call???? lol

  14. Russ Balbirona says:

    So very true…

  15. lucky51762 says:

    The real question is Where did he get the money to buy all of that gold?
    What kind of job did he have to earn that much money?
    There is a lot more to this story.

  16. jonssonWoW says:

    Incredible story =)
    

  17. justanotherpulltab says:

    just proves….you cant take it with ya

  18. Russ Balbirona says:

    I wish I has access to it and I agree storage units would be very good place to look.

  19. Colton Case says:

    No doubt theres more hiden somewhere, and if ya need a prospector to metal detect for it, sign me up
    If it were me looking for more, I would definately look into see if he had any storages he rented

  20. Russ Balbirona says:

    As would I!

  21. Magnum30fps says:

    Wow! I would love to take my metal detector to his property. Cool story.

  22. Russ Balbirona says:

    Yeah me too…Like i said it makes sense to go to distant relatives funerals and while looking for treasure check every box that is marked “books” lol

  23. dtecmeister says:

    Wow. I wish I had that kind of secret.

  24. Russ Balbirona says:

    hahah!
