The Federal Ministry of Culture announced the receipt of 84 Islamic coins from one of the citizens.


In a statement on Thursday, the ministry said: The ministry had received 84 coins and three Islamic fragments dating back to the late Abbasid period of an Iraqi citizen who heads a civil society organization, adding that the citizen had found and bought some Islamic coins in the city of Sinjar, which appeared during the sabotage of a supporter of archaeological sites in that region.


"The coins will be deposited with the Iraqi Museum and they will be taken to laboratory treatment, some of them will go to stores and some to the museum show, calling for the handover of the antiquities offered for sale somewhere to the Iraqi Museum," the statement said.
