About This Item

Goldenhorns - Silver

In Denmark, close to the German border, two horns made of gold were found in a field at Gallehus. The first was found in year 1639 and the second  in 1734. The horns were made around year 450. In 1802 the horns were stolen by a poor goldsmith named Niels Heidenreich. He melted them in his kitchen and used the gold for making jeweleries under a false name.

The goldsmith was caught and put to prisson for 38 years. He died 4 years after getting out.

Using old drawings it was possible to reconstruct copies of the horns. These copies have been on display at the National Museum in Copenhagen for many years, true national treasures of Denmark. Incredibly, the copies were stolen in 2007 while on loan to another Danish museum, but fortunately they were soon recovered by the Police.

Based on this true story we made the Golden Horns Geocoin.
