Rare-coin merchant to sponsor Celtic hoard

News | Published:

THE world's leading rare-coin merchant has agreed to sponsor Jersey's Celtic coin hoard exhibition.

Stanley Gibbons Investment, which also specialises in rare stamps and collectibles, will be funding the exhibition when it moves from Jersey Museum to a semi-permanent exhibition space at La Hougue Bie in the next few weeks.

The hoard was discovered in a Grouville field three years ago by two metal detectorists and contains more than 70,000 Celtic coins, as well as a number of gold torques and other items.

A dedicated team of specialists have been recording and identifying the items and will continue to work from the conservation laboratory when it moves to La Hougue Bie.
