Silver 12th Century coins found in a field in Derbyshire have been declared treasure by a coroner.
The 10 coins were unearthed by several metal detectorists in 2014 and date from the reigns of King Stephen and King Henry II.
Historians believe they were probably originally in a purse dropped by a trader and amounted to about a week's wages.
The coroner's decision paves the way for a museum to acquire them.
