On April 12 1972, Edward Zuraw discovered a hoard of coins while ploughing his land (Hoard was acquired by the Numismatic Cabinet of the Regional Museum in Lublin). The money was hidden in a wooden box which has not been preserved. The hoard comprises 1007 coins, including 991 Polish and 16 foreign ones. The Polish coins date from the time of Sigismund I the Old, Stefan Batory and Sigismund III Vasa. The chronological extremes of the hoard comprises the following coins: a crown half-groschen by Sigismund I from 1508 (the oldest coin of sure dating), and Lithuanian schillings by Sigismund III Vasa from 1623. Thus the hoard was hidden in 1623 or in the 1620s. The hoard's total value amounted to more than 350.26 Groschen.
