3 Rare Coin Hoards and Their Mysterious Origins

The Cuerdale Hoard

A huge Viking treasure chest called the Cuerdale Hoard has been found. People who were digging a hole near the River Ribble in Lancashire, England, found it in 1840. 

There were more than 8,600 silver coins and bars in the hoard, as well as more than 100 pieces of silver jewelry. As such, they are some of the oldest English coins ever found. 

The Hoxne Hoard

The Hoxne Hoard is a group of Roman gold and silver coins that were found in 1992 in Hoxne, Suffolk, England. It was found by someone using a metal detector.

It had more than 15,000 coins, jewelry, and other things in it. The coins are from the 4th and 5th centuries AD and are an interesting look into the Roman Empire as it was falling apart.

The Seaton Down Hoard

The Seaton Down Hoard is a group of Iron Age coins that were found in Devon, England, in 2014. It was one of the biggest Iron Age hoards ever found, with more than 22,000 silver and gold coins. 

These coins, which date back to the first century B.C., offer a glimpse into the wealth and communication networks that existed during that time period.
