Huge hoard discovered

Posted on Thu, 8 July 2010 by Phil Mussell - General News, Coin News

News is coming in of the discovery of a hoard of more than 52,000 Roman Coins. The hoard, discovered after a single coin was found and reported by a metal detectorist in Frome, Somerset was first unearthed in April but details are only just emerging now. It is thought that rather than being a hoard hidden and intended for the recovery the coins were in fact part of an offering to the Gods.

More news on the subject will appear in the September issue of COIN NEWS but for more details now see the BBC's website
