Images released of stolen antique coins

Published 27 November 2015
Police in Edinburgh have released images of antique coins, which were stolen earlier this year. 

Officers have been investigating the incident, which took place at the National Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street on 2nd September and recently issued CCTV footage of two men they wish to speak to in connection with their inquiries. 

Now, photographs of the coins are being shared to establish if members of the public have come across these items, or if anyone has attempted to sell them on. 

Anyone who can assist officers with their investigation is asked to come forward. 

The estimated combined value of the stolen coins is around £20,000.

Detective Constable Mark Seymour said: “We continue to pursue various lines of inquiry in relation to this theft and remain keen to speak to the two men pictured in the CCTV footage we recently provided. 

“We have now issued images of the coins in the hope someone will recognise them and come forward to tell us where they can be found. 

“If you have any information relevant to this investigation then please contact police immediately.” 

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or make an anonymous report to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
