A UNIQUE hoard of 199 silver coins found in Abergavenny and dating from 1066-87 have been included in a list of top treasures.

The coins (pictured) date which date back to the early days of Norman incursions into Wales under William The Conqueror - have been included in a Sunday Telegraph top 20 list of treasures that the public will be invited to vote on to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the implementation of the Treasure Act 1996.

The coins had been lost or hidden in a cloth bag and would have represented several months’ pay for most people. Members of the public can vote for their top 20 list of treasures which the public are invited to vote on at telegraph.co.uk/wellbeing/mood-and-mind/treasure-20-vote-favourite/
