A valuer at a Derbyshire auction house was astonished when a man walked in with a rucksack containing £200,000 worth of gold.
The man, who wished to remain anonymous, told the valuer how he had kept the collection of sovereigns, rings and ingots in the bathroom of his home.
Staff at Charles Hanson’s auction house were then surprised for a second time when the mystery man told them he wished to donate the valuables to a local charity. This extraordinary act of kindness came after he picked up a Bible and randomly opened it up at Jesus's advice to the Rich Man: "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven."
