The 264 gold coins were discovered by a British archaeological volunteer on a dig in Jerusalem National Park. The coins have been taken over by the Israel Antiquities Authority. The volunteer will not be allowed to take he findings out of the country.

The ‘hoard of gold coins’ are from the 7th century Byzantine period and are 1,400 years old. The collection is described as “one of the largest and most impressive coin hoards ever discovered in Jerusalem”, by those directing the excavation. The coins were discovered in a collapsed building in the Giv’ati car park in the City of David below walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. It is believed that the coins were hidden in the walls of the building, and when the building collapsed, the coins were piled and mixed with debris.
