Spanish builder to finally receive his share of the treasure trove he found
eight years ago

His share of the thousand year old Islamic gold coins
could be as much as 2 million Euro

A find made eight years ago is to finally bear fruit
for a Valencia workman, who the Supreme Court has
ruled will receive 25% of the value of the treasure
trove he unearthed on a building site in Valencia
city centre.

He found almost two thousand Islamic gold coins on
the site on Calle Santa Elena. The Dinars are more
than a thousand years old and it means his windfall
could be as much as 2 million.

The company he worked for at the time also claimed
discovery, and P blico reports that the news that
Antonio had won the case came just a few days before
he was due to sign on as unemployed. The Valencia
government's department for culture will now be
responsible for paying him his share of the Dinars
in euros.
