GoldMoney is one of the world leaders in providing physical precious metals and secure storage for their clients and so it seems only natural that the Jersey based company is supporting community fundraising for the Jersey coin hoard.
The coin hoard has just gone on display at Jersey Museum & Art Gallery, but Jersey Heritage are calling on Islanders to help ensure the full story behind the hoard is uncovered, by donating to its long-term care.
GoldMoney are sponsoring a series of exciting events which will be open to those who give generously towards the appeal. The first events were held on the 14th and 20th May and were held at the Jersey Musuem and Art Gallery but there will be more for donors throughout the rest of the year.
Jeremy Swetenham, Director of Commercial Operations: ‘Jersey Heritage have developed a dedicated fundraising initiative associated with the long-term care of the coin hoard. Everyone who makes a donation is entitled to a series of benefits which reflects their support. We are delighted to form a partnership with GoldMoney who are supporting Jersey Heritage in this innovative fundraising activity’
The hoard was discovered by Jersey metal detectorists, Reg Mead and Richard Miles two years ago and contains around 70,000 pieces of mainly silver alloy coins, but also some jewelry.
Chief Executive Officer, GoldMoney, Geoff Turk said: ‘We wanted to help with the conservation and understanding of this historic find which is of significant importance. The various events which will be organised throughout the year will give donors a special insight into the work that is going on to recover the items within the hoard. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for Islanders to get up close to some real treasure as it gives up its secrets.’
