Comment

The Kempen treasure is one of the largest gold and silver coin treasures found in the Netherlands in recent decades. It was discovered by a man, a Dutch “treasure hunter” whose patience and persistence finally paid off. This treasure is a witness to a historical period, the 16th century, when international trade flourished between the world’s great powers.
