A hoard of silver coins discovered in a County Antrim field has been declared treasure.

An inquest heard the 84 coins may have been lost or buried near Kinbane Castle during the 11 years of war in Ireland from 1641 to 1652.

Paul Reynard said he found them while searching for a ring in a field in October 2019.

With the exception of one, the shillings and sixpences are English and cover a period between 1551 and 1649.

Greer Ramsey, from National Museums NI, said the discovery of a Bavarian thaler dated 1625/6 was of particular interest and "much more unusual".
