Who stashed gold inside a British piano? It's a mystery

The 913 gold coins which were found in a piano, are displayed at Ludlow Museum in Ludlow, England Thursday April 20, 2017, where they are being kept under lock and key. As a mystery surrounds the identity of the rightful heirs to a treasure trove of gold coins. British officials say they have been unable to trace the rightful heirs to a trove of gold coins worth a "life-changing" amount of money. The school that owns the piano and the tuner who found the gold are now in line for a windfall after a coroner investigating the find declared it treasure.

The hoard, which weighs 6 kilograms (13 pounds), has not been formally valued. But Peter Reavill of the British Museum has said the trove is worth a "potentially life-changing" amount.
