UK Authorities Seek Owner of Gold Trove Stashed inside Piano

Thursday, 16 March 2017 11:38 AM

LONDON (AP) — British officials are trying to trace the owner of a trove of gold coins worth a "life-changing" amount of money found stashed inside a piano.

A coroner investigating the find on Thursday urged anyone with information to come forward.

When the piano's owners took it to be tuned last year, it was found to contain a hoard of gold sovereigns minted between the mid-19th and early 20th centuries.

Investigators have determined that the piano was built in London in 1906 and are seeking information on its ownership before 1983.

Anyone wanting to make a claim has until April 20, when coroner John Ellery will conclude his inquest.

If the gold's owner or heirs cannot be traced, it will be declared treasure, and the piano's owners will reap the reward.
