Treasure & Coin Hoards Home Page

The Treasure Coins and Hoards section of CoinWeek provides current and historical information on one of the most interesting specialty collecting areas. Although most treasure coins conjure up images of the 17th century Spanish galleons sinking in tropical hurricanes, in fact, numismatic treasure finds span virtually all centuries and includes anceint coins, world coins and even US coins.

Treasure in any form garners huge interest when found, kindling that inner spirit of adventure that one day we too might stumble upon a secret treasure trove ourselves. The same is true of Hoards, caches of ancient coins buried in the ground or US gold coins stuffed into tin cans. It all feeds into an archetypal fantasy of fond riches. We hope you enjoy this section of CoinWeek as we bring you the most interesting and famous treasures from around the globe.
