|The last coins from an ancient Celtic hoard discovered in a field in Jersey have been successfully removed from the dirt they were buried in.|
Dating from around 30-50 BC, the collection of nearly 70,000 coins was six times larger than any other similar Celtic artifacts and also included jewellery, beads and fabric.
It is the first hoard of coins found in the island for more than 60 years.|
Several hoards of Celtic coins have been found in Jersey before but the largest was in 1935 at La Marquanderie when more than 11,000 were discovered.
|This is the world's biggest Celtic coin hoard ever, and was a significant part of a tribe's wealth.|
It is also one of the world's biggest coin hoards and certainly the biggest coin hoard found in Britain. The value of the hoard was estimated at up to £10m when it was first removed from the ground.
