    While there is much I can knock the British government for. Their treasure trove potable antiquities scheme for treasure trove is much fairer than many countries. And providing you follow the rules quite fair.

    If you look at the link below I have highlighted some amazing discoveries in which the finder has been reward fair compensation for their discovery. Some into many millions. The finder, the land holder gets a cut. The country gets an amazing but cultural history preserved. Which is win win.

    Valuation of such finds is made by an independent body who decides the value. If the finder disputes the said value then they can get their own independent valuation at their own cost. Generally there is no problem. While some has disputed such valuations because of an over inflated expiation of value. Most are happy with the valuations and take the payout granted. Payments usually take 12 months from the notice of treasure trove.

    Since the finder of this single gold coin was not declared treasure trove because the definition of treasure trove you have find more than one coin. So they was at liberty not to declare it as treasure trove.
