The Hoxne Hoard/$15 Million

Roman Gold & Silver

Roman Gold & Silver

 

I love treasure hunting for this reason… You never know what you will find next…

The Hoxne Treasure is perhaps the richest cache of gold and silver coins, jewellery and tableware from the entire late Roman world.

Twenty-nine pieces of gold jewellery, 124 silver table utensils of various types and over 15,000 gold and silver coins were placed carefully into a wooden chest and buried at some point during the early 5th century AD.
