Hoards

Coin Hoards are often found in Britain and are a great source of numismatic knowledge. When found they can be studied and often reveal fascinating facts about our past coinage. Most often seen are Roman Coin hoards (especially dating to the 4th century A.D.) but others from the Iron Age/Celtic period, Anglo Saxon, Viking, Norman & Medieval times are sometimes discovered.  Many are acquired by museums through The Treasure Act but sometimes they are returned to the discoverers and that is where we come in. We can conserve, research and publish a hoard in such a way that the coins and information surrounding it will be available for future generations to enjoy and further study. We are happy to offer free advice and would love to hear from anyone who has been lucky enough to find/own a hoard today.

Below you will see examples of our work and previous finds we have dealt with. We have more experience in this field than any other dealer/auction house so are well placed to help you, our Director has even found a few hoards himself!

The Falmouth Roman Coin Hoard

The Falmouth hoard of approximately 600-1000 roman bronze coins of the 3rd & 4th Century AD was found on farmland near Falmouth while ploughing on the 18th April 1865. This small parcel from the hoard was formally in the possession of the late Lord Stewartby (MP) who studied the find and wrote the following article.

The Martock Hoard

21st July 2012. On a typical British summer morning two metal detectorists headed for a ploughed field near the village of Martock on the edge of the Somerset levels. They had targeted the field due to it being near the famous Fosse Way Roman road and on previous visits found evidence of Roman occupation so there was a sense of excitement as they headed down the green country lanes. Matthew & Paul are father and son and had been detecting for 25 years so knew a thing or two about reading fields and picking the best areas to search. This was certainly the case on this day. More information | View Coins for Sale
