A hoard of medieval coins found near Llay is to go on display at Wrexham Museum for the first time.

The hoard is made up of 31 coins and it is thought they were probably buried soon after 1412.

“The coins lay in the ground until December 2005 when they were found by two metal detectorists,” said Jonathan Gammond, Wrexham Museum’s exhibition officer.

The coins will be on display when the museum reopens later this month.

The coins represent a substantial sum of money for the time in which they were buried.

“The coins in the Llay Hoard add up to 11 shillings and 11 pence,” said Mr Gammond.
