Medieval coins at local Museum (LakelandRadio, UK)

A hoard of medieval coins has gone on display at Kendal Museum 360 years after being lost or hidden in Westmorland.

The coins were found by a metal detector user on farmland in Hincaster in July 2004, and all are official silver issues of the English monarchs Elizabeth the 1st, James the 1st and Charles the 1st.
