Ancient silver coins totaling 224 were found by chance on 14 February in the morning as a man was digging a small conduit to access water from a tube well in the farmland owned by U Tine Kyaw in Mingon Village, Wundwin Township in Mandalay Region.
Each silver coin has a three centimeter diameter and other small silver coins have a two and half centimeter diameter. The silver coins are currently being kept by the people who found them, however they also contacted the Department of Archaeology, National Museum and Library so they can give the coins to archaeology experts in the future so they can determine the origins of coins, according to a source from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
