Unlike the Hermitages Anglo-Saxon coins which are mainly from Russian finds, the coins in this volume come from three major private collectors of the 19th century, Reichel, Stroganov and Plushkin, who purchased internationally. Thus they include some 60 coins of William I that were purchased in London at the Brumell sale of 1850 and derive from the 1833 hoard from Beauworth, Sussex. For the later middle ages the collection is particularly rich in gold coinage.
