Gold found inside old piano is life-changing

It’s been confirmed that a hoard of gold found inside a piano in Shropshire was a collection of sovereign coins.

The collection includes an undisclosed amount of full and half sovereigns. They were found in the piano just before Christmas when the owners had it retuned and repaired.

The coins are dated between 1847 and 1915, and experts say a full sovereign could be worth at least £220. It is thought that the coins may have been deliberately hidden and could be worth a life-changing sum of money.

An inquest is taking place to decide if the haul can be declared treasure. Work is ongoing to try and find out more about the piano and who owned it when. It was sold in Essex in 1906. However, its ownership from then until 1983 is unknown.

Experts say it goes to show that gold holds its value more than any other currency on the planet.
