The Willersey Coin Hoard

In 1968 a hoard of 56 silver Roman coins and a silver ring were discovered in the village of Willersey in north Gloucestershire. They were unearthed when builders were digging foundation trenches for a new building. They were later declared treasure under the Treasure Trove act and sent to the British Museum for cataloguing. Once a valuation was agreed, the Art Gallery and Museum agreed to purchase the hoard. This purchase did not include the silver ring, or two of the coins, which were retained by the British Museum.
