Culture minister defers export of rare gold coin


Recommended Posts

How is it that this piece escaped the Treasure Trove act?  That would have effectively prevented it's private sale to any party, and it would have been received by a museum, such as the British Museum




This is only a guess since I don't know how the UK treasure trove law is worded.



The person who found the coin came upon it while walking his dog along

a river. (his story anyway).


Since it was not a metal detector find or involved digging up the soil it might

have slipped through as a technicality in getting around the treasure trove

law (this is only a guess).
