How sweet it must be to live in a place where you can find fistfuls of hammered silver from the 1600s. I am jealous!

Congratulations on your finds my friend!
Welcome to the BANNER club!
I'm passionate about hunting relic sites . . . as I feel the imprint of past lives often lingers there!
Metal Detectorists finds . . . are the background noise of antiquity!
Don't question it . . . just dig it!

Does "boursée" mean a lot of coins found together? If so, then the common english word used in detecting would be "hoard".
