A collection of 1,141 silver Roman coins found in a field in England has been delcared a treasure. I wasn’t aware there was a process to delcaring a find a treasure.

The find was officially declared treasure today at an inquest in Leamington Spa.

Warwickshire coroner Sean McGovern said: ‘In this case it is a significant find of Roman coins which are indeed treasure.

‘The coins will be valued by the British Museum and they will be worth a reasonably significant sum.
