Detectives appeal for information after discovery of gold coins near Maidstone

Wednesday 27th February 2019

DETECTIVES are seeking to find the rightful owners of a collection of gold coins discovered near Maidstone by a member of the public.

A total of nine coins of varying size and denomination were found in an area close to Allington Castle.

The items were contained inside three small boxes and it is suspected they may have been stolen. Due to the condition they were found in, it is believed they had been left at the location for a lengthy period of time.

They were handed in to police on November 19 2018 and enquiries have been ongoing to establish who may own them.

Officers are now issuing images of the coins, which include the word Britannia on them and which all appear to have been minted during the previous decade.
