Buried Treasure – A Crowning Glory

Buried Treasure – A Crowning Glory

We had a customer come in today that recently bought a Minelab 705 metal detector off us. In a nearby park, about a foot down he found a degraded pouch with 3 old shillings, 2 florins and this real gem that he brought in to show us.

This is a silver 1937 Australian full Crown, minted for only 2 years before the war effort needed the metal. A rare find and in amazing condition (the pouch helped to protect it for all these years). Thank you for showing Lost Treasures your coin Martin. We hope you left some buried treasure behind for us!
