A rare occasion has arised for you to Adopt a Roman Coin! The Tetbury Hoard was discovered in 2010 and excavated in the days following its discovery. The coins were declared Treasure and initially sent to the British Museum for analysis. They have now been generously donated to the Museum by the landowner and are ready to be conserved and put on permanent display. The hoard consists of approximately 1500 coins dating from AD 260s â€“ 280s. This was a time of great political upheaval in the Roman world weâ€™ve been told and the coins are all from the denomination known as radiates. The Friends of the Corinium Museum are now asking for your help to conserve the coins and display them in the Corinium Museum. They are asking for a minimum donation of Â£10 per coin to raise the funds needed to see the Museum's first Roman coin hoard on public display. What a great to help preserve some local history, show your support and find out more on the museum website.
