British Museum launches search to solve mystery of gold treasure hoard found in family piano



Athorough search of any average home may turn up a few coins hidden under sofa cushions, or jewellery tucked away for safe-keeping and forgotten.

Few will reveal a hoard of gold treasure stashed in a piano.

But the British Museum has launched a nationwide hunt to solve just such a mystery of hidden treasure, found planted inside an upright piano sometime in the last century.

Experts are seeking information about the lost gold, which was found by new owners of the piano as they came to tune it in a stash described as "substantial".

Understood to be coins, they were concealed in the piano within the last 110 years but are believed to date from pre-1900.
