Mystery surrounds a coin commemorating the coronation of King George V which has been found inscribed with Great Harwood.
The coin, which is dated 1911, was found by Barbara Banks while cleaning out her brothers flat and believes it was possibly handed down to him by their parents.
Around the edges it reads ‘In commemoration of the coronation of making George V’ with 1911 and Great Harwood written in the middle.
On the back of the coin is a picture of George V and Queen Mary.
However mystery surrounds the origins of the coin and Barbara, of Pendle Road, Great Harwood, said she is curious to find out who made them. She is now calling on Observer readers to help her find out more.
The 64-year-old said: "I found it emptying my brother’s flat.
"I don’t know where it’s come from but it's strange that it has Great Harwood written on it.
"At first I thought it was made of gold but unfortunately it isn't. I don’t know if there’s anybody alive now from 1911 who would know anything about it.
"The coin is a fair old age."
The coin has been lent to Hyndburn History and Heritage Group and member Tracey Simmonds said they will look to trace the origins of the coin. The Observer reported last week how the group is hoping to open a museum exploring Hyndburn’s history.
