Coins from the recently discovered 15th century Bronington Hoard will be going on public display for the first time later this month. The coins will be displayed at various locations in the Maelor area giving local people the opportunity to view their own heritage.
52 coins and a very rare and stunning gold and blue sapphire ring were discovered near Whitewell by metal detectorists in 2012-2017. The hoard was deliberately placed in the ground around 1465 with coins dating from the rule of Edward I to Edward IV.
