He earns that several times over each year. Why risk becoming an accessory after the fact for money that will make no difference to his life. Also, being a house hold name celebrity is going to make it hard to off load gold bullion without being outed.

The English common law on found items made of gold or silver is very different from the US.

 

Under the English common law, gold or silver in any form, which had been hidden and rediscovered, and which no person could prove he or she owned is known as "treasure trove." If the person who had hidden the treasure was known or discovered later, it belonged to him or her, or their descendents. To be treasure trove, an object had to be substantially that is, more than 50% gold or silver.

The Crown had a prerogative right to treasure trove, and if the circumstances under which an object was found raised a prima facie presumption that it had been hidden, it belonged to the Crown unless someone else could show a better title to it.

 

That's why it was handed over to the Govt. This is not a modern concept - it has been the law since medieval times.

So if treasure that is found, and that cannot be accounted for, goes back to all the people that's a bad idea?

 

Glad your ancestors left us!

Hell- why do you think I left the UK and ended up in Oklahoma? I got fed up with moss growing on the north side of my body if I stood still for too long.
