More than 40,000 people saw the Staffordshire Hoard in Birmingham
More than £750,000 has been raised so far to keep the Anglo-Saxon Staffordshire Hoard in the West Midlands.
Campaigners need to raise £3.3m to make sure the 1,500 artefacts, found by a metal detecting enthusiast in July, are not sold to private collectors.
Some of the items are going on display in Stoke-on-Trent this weekend, which campaigners say will boost funds.
Historian Michael Wood was unveiling the selection later.
About 80 items will then go on display to the public on Saturday at the Potteries Museum.
The Art Fund is leading the campaign to raise the £3.3m needed to buy the hoard.
More than 40,000 people saw the Staffordshire Hoard when it was shown in Birmingham in the autumn.
