An 18th-century gold coin worth up to £250,000 has been discovered in a child’s pirate treasure collection.
The anonymous owner had been given the rare Queen Anne Vigo five guinea piece as a youngster by his grandfather.
With no idea of its value he kept it in his toy box for pirate games, until it was packed away and forgotten about.
