Coroner rules Iron Age gold coins as treasure

A CACHE of Iron Age gold coins thought to be more than 2,000 years old has been unearthed in Gnosall.

The four coins were discovered in July last year by four people using metal detectors and are thought to belong to the same hoard.
It is one of two significant finds in the Stafford area this year. In May a silver Snake ring dating back to Roman times was discovered on a farm in Gailey.
Both finds were this week declared as treasure by Staffordshire South coroner Andrew Haigh.
