This paper offers an update on the famous Beaurains hoard, found in Northern France exactly a hundred years ago. Dating to the beginning of the 4th century, the hoard is one of the most important coin finds of Late Antiquity, particularly because of spectacular gold medallions it contained. It was partly dispersedd on the very evening of its discovery and scholars have been trying to put it back together ever since. The quest goes on as new specimens from the hoard regularly appear on the market, making it possible to complete the catalog. As for the physical preservation, parts of the hoard are kept in museums all over the world, and significant acquisitions have been made recently by French institutions.
