The Treasure Act 1996 and RewardsThe Act is accompanied by a code of practice which gives advice on the discovery, ownership and valuation of treasure, and on the identification and care of finds. A key provision of the Act relates to the payment of rewards in relation to treasure, with the relevant extract as follows:“Those eligible to receive rewards are the finder(s), landowner and / or occupier. Where the finder has a valid permission from the occupier or landowner… he will receive his full share of the reward. It is normal practice to divide rewards equally between the finder and landowner on a 50:50 basis.”This is our normal practice where metal detectorists are searching with our consent. The Act also states that if a finder is searching without permission they may receive a reduced or no reward.
