A lucky couple who found an incredible hoard of 264 gold coins buried under their kitchen floor have sold it at auction for a staggering £754,320.<br />
<br />
While metal detectorists can spend years searching for such a treasure trove, the unnamed couple were relaying their kitchen floor when they stumbled across a cup filled to the brim with coins that are up to 400-years-old.<br />
<br />
They were 'stunned' as the results rolled in and the hoard sold for more than over three times its estimate.
