COEVORDEN, Netherlands, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Excavations in the Netherlands have uncovered 30 coins that date back to the 15th century, archaeologists say.
Radio Netherlands said Thursday that archaeologists suspect a traveling salesman may have left the silver coins in the Dutch town of Coevorden at one point in history.
The coins were minted between 1380 and 1425, archaeologists say. The coins were minted in various Dutch cities, along with the German city of Aachen and the Belgian city of Ghent.
Since the coins were found in Coevorden, they are expected to go on display at Coevorden Castle before becoming the property of the Drenthe province where the city is located.
