Wrexham Museum debut showing for medieval coin hoard

A hoard of medieval coins found near Llay is to go on display at Wrexham Museum for the first time. The hoard is made up of 31 coins and it is thought they were probably buried soon after 1412.

"The coins lay in the ground until December 2005 when they were found by two metal detectorists," said Jonathan Gammond, Wrexham Museum's exhibition officer.

The coins will be on display when the museum reopens later this month.
