A California teacher has suddenly inherited $7.4 million worth of gold from a first cousin she never knew!

The man died with only a grand in the bank but when officials searched his house, they found a stash of gold worth millions!

Officials worked to track down a relative to claim the money and the teacher ended up being the lucky one to get the gold.
