Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Derbyshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post-Medieval hoard of silver coin clippings, stored in an intact ceramic jar. The hoard contains coinage of Philip and Mary (1553-1558), Elizabeth I (1558-1603), James I (1603-1625) and Charles I (1625-1649). The items were declared Treasure Trove at an inquest in 1972.
