Gerbystä Marjapolku 3:sta löytyi kesällä 1988 rakennustöiden yhteydessä 4 kpl plooturahoja 1650-luvulta. Rahat oli kätketty kivenhalkeamaan aivan silloisen rannan tuntumaan. Löydetyt rahat ovat hyvin harvinaisia ja plooturahan historiaa valaisevina erittäin merkittäviä.

A = 2 taaleria, 1652, näitä rahoja on aikaisemmin tunnettu vain 2 kpl
B = 2 taaleria, 1654, näitä rahoja on aikaisemmin tunnettu vain 7 kpl
C = 2 taaleria, vuosiluku epäselvä (Kristiina, 1653?)
D = 1 taaleri, vuosiluku epäselvä (Kaarle X Kustaa, 1655-1660)

Sommaren 1988 hittades 4 st plåtmynt från 1650-talet i samband med byggnadsarbeten i Gerby vid Bärstigen 3. Mynten var gömda i en spricka i ett stenblock alldeles invid den dåvarande strandlinjen. De upphittade mynten är mycket sällsynta och betydande genom att de belyser plåtmyntens tidiga historia.

A = 2 daler, 1652, från förut känner man endast till 2 stycken av detta mynt.
B = 2 daler, 1654, från förut känner man endast till 7 stycken av detta mynt.
C = 2 daler, årtalet oklart (Kristina, 1653?)
D = 1 daler, årtalet oklart (Karl X Gustav, 1655-1660)

Cache of copper plate money
In the summer of 1988, 4 pieces of plate, minted in the 1650´s were found during construction work done at Marjapolku 3 in Gerby. The money was hidden in a crack in a boulder near the shoreline of the time. These coins are very rare and significant in that they are important examples of the early types of plate money.

A = 2 daler, 1652, only 2 examples of this type of coin were previously known
B = 2 daler, 1654, only 7 examples of this type of coin were previously known
C = 2 daler, date uncertain (Christina, 1653?)
D = 1 daler, date uncertain (Charles X Gustav, 1655-1660)

E = A - 1
F = B + 6
G = C + 1

Today there is a rumour in Vaasa downtown that there have been actually two caches in Gerby and second one has not been found yet. Your task is to find the plates and cache. Good luck!
