Seaton Down Hoard
The Seaton Down Hoard has arrived at RAMM. With 22,888 Roman coins, it is by far the largest coin hoard found in Devon and the third largest ever found in Britain.
The coins were found by a metal-detectorist in a field near Seaton. They are now one of the most important parts of the museum’s archaeology collection.
Thank you to Patrick and Sally Long, Clinton Devon Estates, Devon County Council, Thomson Reuters and the hundreds of private donors who helped us buy the hoard.
The hoard is now on display in RAMM’s Making History gallery.
