A Post Medieval gold coin fragment; probably a couronne of Philip IV of Spain, as ruler of the Spanish Netherlands (AD 1621-65); the earliest issue of this coin was dated 1622 (Brussels) and the latest 1657 (Antwerp). Less than an eighth of the coin survives. The coin fragment is 12.4mm long, 7.6mm wide and 0.6mm thick. 0.39g. The diameter could have been about 30mm.

I have examined two coins found in August 2004, and delivered to the British Museum on 15 March 2005. The coins consist of two silver pennies of Alexander III, king of Scotland, from his second coinage, issued between 1280 and about 1286. The Scottish coinage at this time followed the standards of the English coinage, so the coins will have a silver content equivalent to the sterling standard, 92.5% fine metal. Although the two coins survive in fragmentary from, this presumably occurred during their time in the ground, since they do not seem particularly worn by long circulation. B…

A coin hoard comprising of seventy-seven silver coins, dating from Edward I to Henry VI, dating to the period around AD 1430. Description: I have examined a group of 77 coins found in September 2004. The cloins are all of silver and all but one are official issues of the kinds of England, and thus will be of the traditional sterling standard, 92.5% fine metal.The one non-English coin is continental sterling imitation, one of many issued by rulers to resemble English pennies of the late 13th to mid 14th century: Valeran of Ligny's output was probably from the 1310s-20s, and this coi…

I have examined ten coins reported found near Stowe. The first batch of five coins was found on 13 November 2004 and formed the subject of an earlier version of this reported dated 17 December 2004. Before the find reached the stage of inquest, a further find of coins on the site, made on 25 March 2005, was reported and these have now been incorporated into this amended report. The coins are all official English silver issues of the later 16th and 17th century and are thus of sterling standard of 92.5% fine metal. The details of the coins are as follows (the most recently-found coins …

Treasure Case : 2016 T728. I have examined a fused group of coins reported found at Calton Huswaithe, North Yorkshire. The group appears to consist of eight silver pennies and the weight, 12.7g, would appear to support this suggested number. Only one of the coins has a face that is clear, as the coin on the other end of the pile seems to have become pitted and illegible. The visible side shows the reverse of a penny of the mint of London from the coinage struck under Edward I-III, c. 1279-1333. The standard of the silver coinage at this time was over 90% fine metal. Since these …

I have examined a group of 10 coins reported found at Winterborne St Martin. All are official silver coins of Queen Elizabeth I and will be of the sterling standard, 92.5% fine metal. The group consists of just two of the silver denominations then in currency, the sixpence and threepence, so clearly represents selected material. The latest clearly dated coin is from 1575, so it appears the group was deposited in the mid to late 1570s. Their details are as follows, listing them by denomination and date (the number at the end of each line is that on the original packet; the coin marked…

A silver grosso issued by the government of the city of Rome (still formally called the Senate), between the mid-13th and mid-14th centuries. Originally of over 90% silver, the coin has been gilded and then been completely converted into a brooch by the addition of a catchment and pin (the latter is now detached from the rest of the object). The weight of the object in its current state (including the detached pin) is 4.21g (an unaltered coin would weigh about 3.3-3.4g). The coin's obverse depicts a seated female figure, the personification of Rome, with the legend ROMA CAPVT MVNDI (R…

~~The following is the treasure report written by Dr Barrie J. Cook I have examined a group of 468 silver objects reported found at Littledean, Gloucestershire. The objects are clippings, material clipped or sheared from the edges of coins. Coin clipping was a long-standing abuse of precious metal coinage in Britain (and elsewhere) and in the medieval and early modern periods was regarded as a major abuse, often linked with counterfeiting, and similarly subject to capital punishment. Description The clippings in this group come from three identifiable groups of coins from th…

Duplessy, Les monnaies françaises royales (1988) no. 193. Two other examples of this type of piedfort have been published. Finds of single coins are not normally considered as potential Treasure. However, non-functional coins or coin-like objects of precious metal do have the potential to be so considered. The first piedfort reported under the Trea…

British Museum Curatorial Report: "I have examined a coin reported found at Harrogate. It is a silver penny of King Charles I (1625-49) and will be of the sterling standard, over 90% fine metal. It is hard to date the coin more precisely, as it is folded over, almost into a flattened roll, with only the reverse visible and the initial mark hidden. It is likely to belong to the later 1630s or very early 1640s. Its weight is 0.49g. Single coins are not eligible for consideration as Treasure, unless they have been altered in some way to turn them into something else, usually jewell…
