Posted by on November 25, 2014


“The so called Košice Gold Treasure was discovered on 24 August 1935, during the reconstruction of the building at 68 Hlavná Street in Košice and has since been one of the most significant finds of its kind in the world. Weighing 11.5 kilograms, it comprises 2920 gold coins, three medals and a 2.14 m long Renaissance chain. Deposited in a copper casket engraved with animal motives, the treasure was found in what was once the building of Spiš Chamber. ”
