Treasure Trove

Treasure Trove (literally, found treasure), a term applied to money, coin, plate, or other forms of the precious metals, found hidden, for which no owner or depositor can be discovered. By the common law of England such property becomes vested in the sovereign, if it appears to have been concealed with the intention of reclaiming it. In all other cases, as where circumstances show that the treasure was intended to be abandoned, it belongs to the finder, who by a special order in council is also entitled to the commercial value of ancient coins and other objects of antiquarian interest, under whatever circumstances they may be found. The civil law formerly gave the treasure trove to the finder; or if found on another man's land, it was divided between them; but the practice in continental Europe has in modern times been similar to that in England.
