Burglars steal rare coins
10:34am Saturday 24th August 2013 in News
BURGLARS stole rare coins from a house in Colchester.
The thieves broke into the Maldon Road house between 1pm and 4.30pm on Thursday, smashing a back door.
They took two very rare, mint condition, Austrian ducat coins. One had a unique gold mount and a chain.
The coins have been in the victim's family for years and have survived two world wars and a Russian invasion.
The larger coin was given to the owner as a 21st birthday present by her mother and was given to her mother by her grandmother, also for her 21st birthday.
Anyone with information contact Colchester CID on 101.
