Gold bars buried on UK beach

September 2, 2014

A German artist has hidden£10,000 (nearly $20,000 NZD)  worth of gold bars on a beach in the UK.

Michael Sailstofer said he had hidden the on a beach in Folkestone.

Hundreds of people have started digging for gold which is part of a three month art festival. The organisers say diggers can keep any gold they find.

So far around 3 bars have been found.

But it’s not going to be very easy to find the gold. The artist has buried hundreds of small metal rings called washers to throw gold hunters off the scent.

There are only 30 bars of gold hidden on the beach.

The organisers will never know if the gold has been found or not as they have no way of tracking the small bars.
