Gold coins of 1300-year-old discovered in Jerusalem

The Israel Antiquities Authority announced Monday that 264 gold coins of 1300-year-old was exposed Sunday in Jerusalem.

A large cache of the 264 gold coins was discovered during archaeological excavations which began about two years ago in the Giv'ati car park in the City of David in the Walls Around Jerusalem National Park, the authority said in a statement.

According to the statement, the coins were among the ruins of the building that dates to about the seventh century CE, or the end of the Byzantine period and the beginning of the Umayyad period.

"This is one of the largest and most impressive coin hoards ever discovered in Jerusalem - certainly the largest and most important of its period," said Dr. Doron Ben-Ami and Yana Tchekhanovets, directors of the excavation at the site on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority.

The excavation of the large building, in which the hoard was discovered, is still in its early stages and the archaeologists are continuing collecting further data of the coins.
