Retired police officer and metal detecting enthusiast Kath Giles unearthed a Viking-era "piggy bank" filled with 1,000-year-old silver coins, jewelry and other artifacts on Isle of Man, a British dependency located off the northwest coast of England.

The find is Giles' fourth discovery since picking up metal-detecting as a hobby three years ago.

BBC News reports her latest find contains some 87 silver coins, 13 pieces of metal arm-rings known as "hack silver” and several other artifacts. Experts suggest the pieces date between 1000 and 1035 A.D.

Experts suspect the treasure trove was intentionally hidden away for safekeeping.

Some of the artefacts:
