Celtic coins to remain in Jersey thanks to UK£738,000 government grant

In 2012, Reg Mead and Richard Miles discovered a hoard of 70,000 Celtic coins in a field on the island of Jersey. Now a grant of UK£738,000 will allow the UK£10m treasure to remain on the island.

The gold, silver and copper coins created a mound weighing in at over one ton. The collection will begin being displayed at the Jersey Museum in 2014.
