School children in Melrose have been finding out more about the Roman coins found at Synton.
They have created their own coins from different materials, which are being displayed at the Melrose Trimontium Museum, alongside the coins themselves.
The hoard was found near Ashkirk last year and has recently been acquired by the museum following a successful bid.
"The school next to the museum have created a welcoming exhibition," said Donald Gordon from the Trimontium Museum.
"They have made clay and fabric coins and learned more about how they were found. We can show them these lovely coins, which show the fashions of the day and give children something to look at. The children were very interested in trying to make replicas of them," he added.
