Hoard of Dark Age coins to auction



2015-07-06 16:21:04

A remarkable hoard of Dark Age viking and anglo saxon coins that were descibed as 'overvalued' by both the Yorkshire Museum in York and the British Museum are to go up for sale with London numismatists Spink.

This is a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire coins of this nature which are normally declared treasure under the 1996 act and go to museums.

 both the Yorkshire Museum in York and the British Museum expressed interest in buying the hoard but felt that it was overvalued by the Treasure Valuation Committee.

The coins will be up for sale on March 26th.
