About the series
Rebel Gold is a new American adventure reality docu-series that follows a seasoned group of treasure hunters as they search for legendary vanished treasures of the Civil War. Produced by ITV Studios America and executive produced by Jerry Decker, Patrice Andrews and Rob Shaftel, the series premiered on September 15, 2015 on the Discovery Channel.
As the Civil War came to an end in 1865, Confederate President Jefferson Davis fled Richmond Virginia with the contents of the Confederate treasury — estimated to be worth $20 million in gold and silver coins. Davis was captured six weeks later, but the treasure was never seen again. Rebel Gold follows the treasure hunters as they join forces to retrace Jefferson Davis’ trail in search of clues that could lead them to the vanished treasure. With new evidence, the group will venture off the beaten path, digging deep into American history and local legends to find out what really happened to the missing treasures.
In season 1 of the series premiere, a local Southern mansion and abandoned plantation are searched as possible hiding places for 39 kegs of silver coins. Other confirmed locations for the treasure hunters include Amelia, Virginia and Chester, South Carolina. Viewers will have to stay tuned to see if Rebel Gold finds itself renewed for season 2. There has been no word from the Discovery Channel regarding the release of a potential next season.
