Detectorists dig up over 500 coins from 1300s

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A group of amateur metal detectorists dug up a 14th century hoard of more than 550 rare gold and silver coins worth an estimated £150,000.

The four - including three Geordies - struck gold in a field in Hambleden, Buckinghamshire and were initially delighted to find 12 ornately decorated silver Edward I and II coins.

But the men - more used to digging up shotgun shells and thimbles than treasure - were astonished to find coin after coin from the hidden ancient hoard.

Over four days they excavated 557 coins - including 12 ultra-rare full gold nobles from the time of the Black Death.
