Gold coin collection to go on show in St Neots
A COLLECTION of Iron Age coins which were found two years ago in a field near Kimbolton will finally go on display in St Neots.
The 68 gold coins, known as the Kimbolton Hoard, were discovered in October 2010 by metal detectorist Andrew Thomas.
After being declared treasure of the Crown, they were housed at the British Museum and offered to St Neots Museum for �22,000 earlier this year.
Following months of fundraising the museum secured the money to make the purchase and the coins will be exhibited for two weeks in December.
Museum curator, Liz Davies, told The Hunts Post: “Leave 1 parr””
