Rare Gold Relic on Display at British Museum

The ancient and rare gold necklace was discovered in a field near Newark and is currently on display at London’s British Museum reports the BBC. Commonly known as the “Newark Torc” the necklace is a combination of gold and silver and valued at over £350,000.

The rare relic was discovered by amateur treasure hunter Maurice Richardson back in 2005. Newark and Sherwood District Council bought the artefact that dated back to 250BC to keep it in the region and preserve the area’s heritage. It is possible to buy gold of this value and heritage with government funding.

The Newark Torc is currently on loan to the British Museum and it is the first time this rarely seen gold and silver necklace has gone on public display.

The necklace is one of the most significant examples of Celtic artwork found in Northern Europe. Suggestions for the purpose of the necklace include it being worn as a civic ornament or that it was buried as part of a religious ceremony or offering.

Investors who buy gold relics that have been discovered pay half of the money to the person who found it and half to the landowner where it was discovered.
