This treasure is close to where I used to swim as a kid during Xmas school holidays in Victoria Australia during summer.
By the way the wife found a gold sovereign in the Inverlock region but was not related to the above treasure.
This is a lengthy article about the hoard finds in England. It follows the saga of two detectorists who found some great objects in 2015.
We are often times a forum that has many more details than the reporters so maybe there is someone here who can help us understand even more.
I hope the link works for everyone.

Not sure if im posting on the right forum, correct me if not Steve. Heard on the news last night a jewelry store in Michigan is going out of business and he has hidden all types of valuable coins and jewelry in many places. He stated he is selling a chance to locate them I think entry is $49.00 per chance? He also stated each piece has a gps tracker on it. Hoe does that work? most gps will get you close then you pull out your metal detector or what? Is this like Geo Caching ?
On another note was informed the Texas Governor rejected our County Judges request to lock us back up...HURRAAAAY! told Judge just make everyone wear mask...good luck on that. lol.
Hope everyone has a safe and healthy weekend and Happy Hunting!
Due to the high danger in entering the house with grains of sand and rusty materials when my woman is there, I keep my buttocks safe leaving any find that is not gold outside in the garden, inside a basket ...
I do not remember how many hunts ago I left this pendant and other coins in the basket, perhaps distracted by the rings, much heavier ... Also it is rare to see pendants with red paint ... It seemed like costume jewelry. Anyway with my daughter yesterday afternoon, we rummaged in the basket and I showed her how many coins that I discard can return as new with a bit of hard work .. She immediately noticed and took the little heart and asked me if she could keep it ...
I was surprised by the color, which I neglected to check well and with a lens I searched for the title engraving ..
With great surprise this 2.3g pendant is 18K and at the current price it is a find of respect!
I explained to my daughter that she will have a prize for this discovery, because I don't want her to wear gold at the age of 6 ...
I was about to throw a good part of everything I collect and leave only coins to clean up and she saved something that I had not even noticed that I had recovered ...
For the record, like an idiot I lost today's hunting session sleeping till late, after more than two weeks of decent waves stop and only 24 hours available before other waves arrive ... Too much wine and roasted meat last night ... Damned Italy
