A total of 913 gold coins dating back to the 18th century, the largest hoard of gold sovereigns in Britain, found hidden in an old piano, has been declared treasure by a court, media reported on Thursday.

The discovery was made in Shropshire in December last year when the piano's new owners had it re-tuned and repaired.

Shrewsbury Coroner's Court decided the find qualified as treasure, which means ownership now lies with the Crown. It will be offered for sale to museums, the BBC reported.
