Fairy Tale Treasure UnEarthed In Austria

A man turning dirt in his back yard stumbled onto buried treasure – hundreds of pieces of centuries-old jewelry and other precious objects that Austrian authorities described Friday as a fairy-tale treasure find.

Austria's department in charge of national antiquities said the trove consists of more than 200 rings, brooches, ornate belt buckles, gold-plated silver plates and other pieces or fragments, many encrusted with pearls, fossilized coral and other ornaments. It says the objects are about 650 years old and are being evaluated for their provenance and worth.

While not assigning a monetary value to the buried bling, the enthusiastic language from the normally staid Federal Office for Memorials reflected the significance it attached to the discovery.

“Fairy tales still exist!” said its statement. “Private individual finds sensational treasure in garden.”

 “one of the qualitatively most significant discoveries of medieval treasure in Austria.”

The statement gave no details and an automated telephone message said the office had closed early on Good Friday. But the Austria Press Agency cited memorials office employee Karin Derler as saying the man came across the “breathtaking” objects years ago while digging in his back yard to expand a small pond.

The weekly Profil magazine identified the man only as Andreas K. from Wiener Neustadt, south of Vienna, and said he asked not to be named.

While he found the ornaments in 2007, Andreas K. did not report it to the memorials office until after rediscovering the dirt-encrusted objects in a basement box while packing up after selling his house two years ago, said Profil. The soil had dried and some had fallen off, revealing precious metal and jewels underneath.

He initially posted photos on the Internet, where collectors alerted him to the potential value of the pieces, leading him to pack them in a plastic bag and lug them to the memorials office, the magazine said in its Friday edition.

Neither Profil nor the memorials office statement said when Andreas K. first alerted Austrian authorities and it was unclear why they waited until Friday to announce the discovery.

Memorials office president Barbara Neubauer told Profil the objects were a “sensational find.”

The magazine said the finder was not interested in cashing in on the trove and was considering loaning the collection to one of Austria's museums.

Taj Mahal Treasure Finds a Home at Cannon Beach Treasure Company

The Taj Mahal sunken treasure, approximately 800 silver coins minted in 1702, can now be seen at Cannon Beach Treasure Company. A cluster of approximately 800 silver coins from the Taj Mahal sunken treasure has found a new home at the Cannon Beach Treasure Company.

The silver rupees were minted in 1702 and discovered among the remains of a shipwreck on the Great Basses Reef in the 1960s by Sir Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Taj Mahal sunken treasure is considered a rare discovery and has been featured on the History Channel's Pawn Stars.

Cannon Beach Treasure Company in downtown Cannon Beach features this and other genuine sunken and buried treasure coins, as well as jewelry and artifacts from around the world. Many of the coins and jewelry pieces offered in the shop have been recovered by owners Robert and April Knecht.

Deep Blue Marine Discovers Caribbean Treasure Ship

Eleven Amazing Metal Detector Discoveries!

Hoxne Hoard
Hoxne is a village in the Mid Suffolk district of Suffolk, England, about five miles southeast of Diss, Norfolk. On November 16, 1992, Eric Lawes was patrolling a field in Hoxne with a metal detector looking for a local farmer’s hammer.

The machine started going crazy and Lawes realized that something very large was buried underground.

He called the Suffolk Archaeological Unit and the Hoxne treasure was discovered!

It included a cache of approximately 15,000 late 4th and early 5th century Roman gold and silver coins and around 200 items of silver tableware and jewelry. They had been buried in a wooden chest. It is the
largest hoard of Roman silver and gold ever discovered.

The treasure was probably hidden during the political turmoil of the time, when the Roman Empire started to break apart in Britain. The gold coins all are 99% percent pure. Most were struck between AD 394 and 405, when Honorius ruled the western empire and his brother Arcadius the eastern.

They come from thirteen different mints and represent eight different emperors.

The entire hoard was considered a treasure trove, which means that it is old enough to be presumed that the true owner is dead and the heirs undiscoverable. It was purchased by the British Museum and today many items are on display to the public. Lawes and the tenant farmer received £1.75 million for the find, which they divided equally. It was the largest payment ever given out since the Treasure Act was introduced.                             Click Here To See More Finds!
