The passenger has five years to come forward, BBC News reports.

Earlier this year, a single mother discovered her own valuable find when she unearthed a 500-year-old coin worth £2,500 in her back garden.

Amanda Johnston, 48, was bored at home in the appropriately named Portsmouth suburb of Moneyfields when she grabbed her son George’s metal detector and set to work looking for treasure.
