1. Anglo-Saxon hoard officially ruled a treasure
The hoard of more than 5,200 Anglo-Saxon coins found by English metal detector enthusiast Paul
Coleman in December 2014, and estimated by experts to be worth
around £1.3 million, has been officially declared a treasure, according to the Daily Mirror.
"Coroner Richard Hulett has ruled the 'exceptional' find was
treasure, meaning that it goes to the Crown. However, Buckinghamshire
County Museum in Aylesbury is set to bid for the coins," the
Mirror reports. "The value will be decided in January and
Mr. Coleman and the landowner can expect to receive a reward."
Coin World last covered this story in August 2015, when a the
Buckinghamshire County Museum put about 20 of the coins on display.
