Pictured: One of the five 'mint' condition gold coins.
A treasure hunting couple are planning on buying a new kitchen after selling a hoard of 14th century gold coins they found for over £39,000.
Pensioners Phil and Joan Castle stumbled upon the 'purse hoard' with their metal detectors in a ploughed field at Romney Marsh, Kent.
Joan, 70, first located a broken forged gold coin on the surface then got a signal and dug down 8ins to discover the brass bar of a Medieval purse that had long disintegrated.
Over the next two hours, she and 71-year-old husband Phil found five gold coins in an area of just 16ft.
