Two Medieval Hoards Discovered in Historical Centre of Moscow

A unique hidden treasure consisting of 11 Russian coins of the epoch of Vasily the Blind (Vasily Tyomny) has been found during archeological digging in Tyoplye Ryady in Ilyinka Street.
      
      This hoard of medieval coins is one of the biggest in Moscow. However, much bigger buried coin treasures have been recently found one the place of a medieval settlement near Volnino Village of Muromsk District, Vladimir Region.
      
      The second find in Moscow has been unearthed in vicinity of Novy Arbat, right by the walls of the House of Journalists in Nikitsky Boulevard - Moscow archeologists have found there another coin treasure, which is dated to the epoch of Ivan the Terrible, to the 1540-1560s, to be more exact. The coins turned to be fake copies of Alsatian thalers. They had been coined not in Moscow, though, but in Upper Alsace, France.
