Thirty bars of 24-carat gold lie buried under the sand of Folkestone's Outer Harbour beach in Kent, ready to be dug up by treasure-seekers.
The gold, worth £10,000, was hidden around the beach by a German artist as part of the town's upcoming triennial arts festival.
Hunters taking part in the so-called Folkstone Digs project have been encouraged to search the beach after low tide, and are allowed to keep any gold they find.
Artists including Yoko One are taking part in this year's festival which runs from August 30 to November 2.
