Medieval Treasure hoard donated to museum

A hoard of 15 silver coins, found on 10 November 2020 on a hillside in Dursley, Gloucestershire, was declared Treasure last week. The hoard was recorded at the PAS as GLO-B2B57C by the detectorist finder, who photographed and identified the coins.

The English coins dated from the Edward VI groat to coins from Henry VIII second coinage. One foreign coin was present in the hoard, a half real of Alfonso V of Portugal.

The finder and the landowner have agreed to waive any remuneration for the hoard and donate the coins to either the Museum in the Park in Stroud or Gloucester Museum
