Interesting indeed...

I wonder how old stuff has to be to be handed over to the state?
Different countries, different laws?

If I find a gold coin from, say 1985, in my back yard can I keep it?

I think if you found one 1985 gold sovereign in your garden, I don`t think there would be an issue, but if you found say 3 Viking gold coins then you should really report it as they will be of historical interest. However, the coins in this case I assume were reported because there were so many of them and they may have been stolen it was only later that there were discovered to have a Nazi connection. But it's not only stuff found buried in the ground, this is a very interesting news report about gold found in a bank...
