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. The majority of clippings are of the whole circumference of the coins. That the clippings were recovered in a ceramic jar probably indicates that they were intended to be recovered and melted down. The cumulative weight of the coin clippings is 907.86g based on a report provided by John Kent, then Assistant Keeper in…

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead bifacial token of post-medieval date. The object is circular and flat. Though worn, the object replicates its design on each side. The decoration consists of a six petalled flower with a central pellet. The border between the central motif and the edge of the token contains a possible illegible inscription. Just underneath the border is a circular perforation possible indicating that the token may have been reused as a pendant. Tokens were easy to make and distributed widely throughout a large period of time; therefore, they are difficult to date precisely. They have a huge ra…
