On the 22nd of March 1970, a hoard of choice Constantinian Roman bronze coins was found in a field adjoining the Fosse Way, near Bourton-on-the-Water. The locals called the area the ‘Money Ground’ because so many Roman coins were found there over the years. This time they found the ultimate source, what had been an original sack of coins hidden almost 1,700 years ago. Correctly, the hoard was handed in and declared as Treasure Trove. I am thankful to David W. Burge for his excellent article about this hoard, in the Numismatic Chronicle of 1973. It tells you everything you would want to know about the hoard. There were 3,292 coins, all bronze, of which 1,802 were struck in London.


We are always being asked for Roman coins struck in Britain and we answer, the only coins you can be sure of, will have the London Mint Mark, which is usually ‘PLN’. That means they were struck in this country and in London. When Mr. Burge wrote about the hoard, some 47 years ago, he made the remark that ‘Many of the smaller module pieces from the mints Londinium (London) and Treveri are almost Mint State’.
Remember, this is a bronze coin struck 1,700 years ago and in incredible condition. This hoard was legally found and declared, so that we can now legitimately offer you these superb condition Roman coins struck in London. Unlike the recent hoard of Hammered Silver Pennies that the finders went to jail for not declaring, these coins are legal to own. Coincraft do not deal in undeclared hoards! The law is fair on a treasure trove and we obey the law.


Even if you don’t collect ancient coins, this is SOMETHING SPECIAL. This is a Roman coin struck in London, England, in choice condition and from a known and declared hoard. Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity clearly stating the coin is real, who struck it and that it comes from the Money Ground Hoard. This is one offer you should not miss! We think that this piece is very special and we are proud to be able to offer it. We have two different Emperor coins available, Constantine the Great 307-337 AD and Licinius 308-324. Here we present the Constantine London Treasure Coin.

Victoria, Silver Threepence Type Set

During the long reign of Queen Victoria, there were three distinct types of her bust used on our coinage. The first type was known as the Young Head type, as she ascended the Throne when she was only 17. This design was used for the next 50 years until she was 67! Then they used the Jubilee Head design, which was for her Golden Jubilee and this was used from 1887-1893. Finally, they used the Old Head design from 1893-1901. We offer the complete three-coin type set of Silver Threepences; dates will, of course, be of our choice as some are quite rare. All of these Threepences are struck in Sterling Silver and will be in Very Good or better condition. They have seen considerable usage and the newest one is over 110 years old. But you'll get all 3 types, Young Head, Jubilee Head and Old Head.
