Shropshire medieval coin finds declared treasure trove

Three hoards of medieval coins found in Shropshire have been declared as treasure by a coroner. The coins – dating from the 13th to 17th centuries – were discovered in Baschurch and near Oswestry.

Mr John Ellery, coroner for north and mid Shropshire, declared all three finds as treasure trove at inquests in Wem yesterday.

The finds could now go on display at Rowley’s House Museum in Shrewsbury and Powysland Museum.
