The Trier Gold Hoard is a hoard of 2516 gold coins with a weight of 18.5 kg found in Trier, Germany in September 1993 during construction works. It is described as the largest preserved Roman gold hoard worldwide. The hoard is on exhibition at the Rheinisches Landesmuseum Trier.
On 9 September 1993, an excavator unearthed and ripped apart a bronze cauldron during excavations for an underground parking garage. Part of the cauldron and some coins went to a dump site, initially unnoticed. After the first coins were detected at the excavation site, treasure hunters also began to search the earth at the dump site.
