When a metal detectorist was asked to look for his friend's lost wedding ring the last thing he expected was to go home £100,000 richer. Paul Raynard, 44, 'broke down in tears' when he and best friend Michael Gwynne, 52, stumbled across their very own pot of gold on October 29. The pair, who were on a short holiday, couldn't believe their luck when they found a cluster of 84 coins dating back to the 1500s in a field near Ballycastle, Northern Ireland. One of the hoard - an ultra-rare Henry VIII coin - is estimated to be worth £5,000 on its own, experts have told Paul. He added other coins - such as one dated 1546, when the famed boy king Edward VI reigned - could be worth up to £3,000.
