Noonans – Vale of Pewsey Hoard

Noonans – Vale of Pewsey Hoard

On 17 May 2022, Noonans are selling the coins from the Vale of Pewsey Hoard of late Roman silver coins. This was a detecting find from 2020. Full details of the find and the hoard are in my article Noonans to sell the Vale of Pewsey Hoard. 

The auction catalogue is available here. There is a buyer’s premium of 24% (plus VAT) on the hammer price.

The auction features coins from thirteen emperors from Constans (337-350) through to Honorius (393-423). I’ve chosen a lot from each one.
