About 22kg of Vietnamese and Chinese ancient metal coins, some dated back to the 11th century, were found buried in a garden in Ha Tinh Province.
The garden’s owner, Dang Van Sinh, said he saw some strangers, who may be thieves, digging in the garden late on Oct. 4.
The busted thieves ran away, leaving the coins, which were kept in five terra-cotta jars, one of which was broken. The vases had been buried two meters underground, Sinh said.
