The truth behind the Lost Gold Treasures of the Philippines

Every person wants to know his own history. Where he came from, the family that he belongs to, and the people that surrounds him. The same thing with a country's history, everybody in almost all nations wants to know where they came from and what influenced their culture. In the case of the Filipinos, our history was hidden from us. From the time that the Spanish "Conquistadors" ruled the country for a hundred years, the history became a myth. A talk of the town, with no evidence to prove its existence.

The importance of knowing our history

Knowing our history gives us dignity, a reason to belong to, and creates nationalism on every person. History places a major role on the success of every nation. You can predict your success or your failure from the history of others. Knowing our own history makes us proud of whom we are.



What we should know

From the recent episode of the "Probe Team", they featured a shocking evidence of our National Gold Treasures. Nobody really knows that it exists. Numerous stories from old people tell about it but no gold treasure to prove it. Another very popular story about national gold treasures is the Yamashita Gold Treasure, which also started from myth. As I stumble upon the article of Talkloud, I found out very important news regarding our long lost National Gold Treasures.

"So the story began there. On that time many of the old town folks are now longing to have one. They continue to dig in the area just to find some gold and get the same fate as with the first gold discoverer. Ok, now all the lucky ones got gold. It is a treasure but still it is part of our history. These gold relics are crafted hundreds of years ago or even thousands. We have the responsibilities to protect it and not to use it on our own sake but for the sake of our future generations"; as said by talkloud.

The effects of these discoveries

These discoveries can be the foundation of future developments. It only shows that our country was rich in culture even before the Spaniards came and conquered us. From different acts of war those cultures slowly disappears and from generations to generations the culture of other countries became influential. The history of who we are became a part of our text books and was not given importance. This National Gold Treasures is the proof of that history and we must take care of it.

Who has it?

The Ayala Museum has taken care of the National Gold Treasures, along with the Central Bank of the Philippines. These two institutions became part of history from the very first time they started protecting and preserving the gold treasures. The full video of it is posted at "Talk Loud". You can check it out and learn more about it.

    i have always, always wanted to find more information about our race before the time of the Spaniards. i believe that the ancient past of our people holds the key to our racial and national identity. it pains me to sometimes feel that we lack an identity or even historical consciousness. my dream is to one day write a fictional book based on our pre hispanic roots

    We can never take back Our Gold Treasures, for instead of despising them who stole it, we are instead worshiping them.

    We owe it to our ancestors and the next generations of our race to recover them.

    Yamashita Gold Treasure—-Sure there was a myth and there is still a myth. A friend of mine was dragged to this treasure and came back to the Philippines and spent most of his life saving to nothing.

    If there are really some gold buried in the Philippines, there would be no con artists existing now. The truth of the matter is, every one is trying to make you think there are gold so that you will finance their everyday expenses for food and cost of living there.

    Think before you spend a penny. If there are gold treasure, the Marcoses took them away.

  • arkatak March 23, 2011 at 11:56 pm

    yamashita treasure should not be part of the history if these are not true.theres no report on TV or any means of media reported that these people or a group of team got a box of gold,because they don’t want everybody knows or simply a form of greddiness.

  • trigger eyes April 3, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    90 percent of our history is missing, yamashita gold is not missing and there’s a lot of excavation needed to get em

    …im a treasure hunter in the philippines and i believe that gold buried during the last days of the japanies lost from the american soldiers. actually i know where is the mountain called by the jappanies tunnel no. 18. situated in kiangan ifugao, before we distroyed the sign that was ingrave in the stone we site the pointer and exactly pointing on the mountain. our problem is that the marker that was ingraved is telling that beside the tunnel is full of bombs and bobby traps that why until now no decisions from the small group, we are only 9 on the group, one of my companion is when he was 25 years of age he was one of the digger of nang the jappanies, and he teached how to read a marker, he also told to my freind that dont believe that the gagets that they are using is effective, believe in markers that was ingraved by the jappanies because the scattered fake maps unlike the genuin marks will never lie. i saw also some of the genuin markers situited aruond the place of servantes problem the mayor, one also in the banaue but the other marker is missing it should be three marker agree each other to locate the tunnel or sinking pit. we are looking for a christian partner that will help us to finance the banaue mountain of treasure of gold diamond jewelries jappanies old coins. we know because before nang died he reveiled to us. we are christian t-hunters. thanks

    I admire your determination in finding yamashita treasures. Someday somebody will be guiding and financing your project. The situation of my previous projects are similar to yours, but persistence and patience brings me to a group of hunters that leads us to promising projects. Never concentrate in a single site, always remember that there are thousands of positive sites untouched and waiting to be opened all over the country. I’ve known three who already recovered those gold bars. One of those is helping me.

    Don’t forget failure in treasure hunting is the result of quitting! No guts no glory!

    Good luck….ALWAYS SEEK GOD’S GUIDANCE! That is proven and effective.

  • Danny boy December 30, 2012 at 5:20 pm


    Looking to be one of your group. I’m from that place, and i have seen a lot of japanese markers.

  • LENNY (GOLD COAST) January 6, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    It is sad to read alot about how man is so focused on Gold, they should focus there mind, heart and soul on the “word” of God. God is our provider, our healer, our protector not man. I was asked to invest $35 000 dollars (aus) on a return of 45 million can you believe this rubbish. As if someone is going to share their wealth of 45 million with me, this is a scam. I was told the Japanese hid the money in the mountains. Lets be honest, with modern technology, we can detect resources hidden under the earth surface. Do not be conned about people telling you that they want to share this treasure with you because they like you, there are mult national corporations in Phillipines minning, if they cant find it, well someone with a metal detector and a shovel pretenting to be a born again christian (wolf in sheep clothing) saying god told him where is was is going to find it. The only gold which is available to everyone is in the bible, he was God’s beloved son called Jesus who died for your sins. If you want to invest, invest in your soul buy a bible and read the word. Look at what happen to King Solomon, he had all the gold in the world but he went stupid and he had a 1000 wives and he was unhappy. Trust in God not man.

  • Walter April 8, 2014 at 12:43 pm

    Anything is possible in this world as well as scam artists in Philippines to the real treasures of Japanese there!
