Thread: German Gold-Gulden Coin, 1480 !

    Re: German Gold-Gulden Coin, 1480 !

    Hi all !

    Thank you very much !

    To sum up a little on all your questions, I can tell you that my first thought was a hoard, a large gold treasure dug down in that field, and a detector buddy and I have of course searched the area very intensively !! We have NOT found any more coins, and only very few finds at all, and only 1 or 2 that could be medieval. We will keep looking.
    The find is strange in that matter that it is single, and a bit off everything. However there are 2 wellknown midieval fortifications in a rang of under 1 mile from the place.
    Talking about age, I think that we here have an other view on that matter. I have found coins that are older (not gold, this was my first) but those were lousy copper ones, but from the beginning of the 1300.
    On the same field there is a settlement from the stone age, dating back to 3000 BC. and we have found about 10 artifact from that time there.

    Keep asking, if you want to know more !

    Dane,

    Congrats on a most beautiful coin.

    I am very interested to see some pictures of the stone tools you have found on the site. I have seen a few Danish stone artifacts in the past, but would love to see some more. I spent a large part of my youth looking for American stone artifacts, and find the Danish flint work to be outstanding.

    Thanks,

    Thank you guys !

    In some few days the coin will be delivered to the museum.
    In my country there is an ancient law, called the "Danefae-lov" that says that all things that are found in the soil is the "property of the King", today meaning the state.
    Danefae is an ancient norse name meaning: Ownerless goods or No mans property.
    The law dates back to the medieval law "Jyske Lov" from 1241, saying that, "what no man owns belongs to the King, finds any man gold or silver in tombs or after the plow or in any other way, then the King shall have it.
    I will as compensation get an amount of money, tax-free, from the National Museum in Copenhagen.
    The law, and the fact that any child knows about it, is of great importance for the studies of and knowledge about our common cultural heritage in my country.
    This law has made it possible that, so to say, no danish artifacts get on "the black market", and that we today in the National Museum have one of the finest collections of antiquity and medieval in the world.

    I totally understand & respect that you follow the Law of the land, in the same way that I do in the UK.
    However, I disagree that it stops your artefact's getting on the black market. They do. Our system is far from perfect, but you can encourage responsible reporting without taking 'everything' off the people that work hard to find them. The UK would go bust if it had to pay for all the objects we find, & they 'cherry pick' which means we still maintain a premier collection. The black market will exsist not matter what Laws we have, its Human nature.

    Canīt say that I disagree with you, Crusader !

    What I wanted to stress was the fact that such a law, and especially the awareness of the people towards this law, is importent for our country. People actually feel pride, when they can send in something to the National Museum.
    But you are right, I wrote that to be misunderstood. Of course you can never 100 % prevent a black market.
    English isnīt my main language. Danish and german are better.

    Thank you

    Ok, no worries, your English is excellent.
    I'm glad you & others have pride in sacrificing your hard earnt objects. If I found a hoard of gold coins, I would have no second thoughts in reporting it. However, I do this under the understanding that I either get them back, get some of them back, or get the market value. The market value means little to me, as money holds no interest to me. Recording the information for future study & getting the objects back is my preferred option. If they belong in a Museum, for everyone to see (& not locked in drawers), then I'm happy to part with them knowing that we all benefit.
    Interesting to learn other countries approaches to the same issue.

    Awesome coin, Steen.

    This one deserves to be added to the "Best of TNet" thread for posterity.
