Lost Change: Mapping Coins from the Portable Antiquities Scheme
The map displays the geo-located coins and mints of the British Museum's Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS). These coins have been found by members of the public in England and Wales and recorded by PAS staff after being declared voluntarily.
The coins are displayed on the map on the left, the mints where they originate to the right. The size of the mint circles is proportional to the number of associated coins recorded by the scheme, with a minimum size for mints with low numbers of coins so that the mint is still clickable.
View the coins for particular periods by clicking the buttons at the top, and drill down further by selecting Rulers from the drop-down.
