    Saxon Gold Coin Found!

    Here are a couple of field pics of my coin moments after I dug it in England last week. As you can see it came out of the ground beautiful - just a little dirt. That's gold for you - doesnt matter how old it is. Here are the particulars: English Saxon Thrysmas gold coin - Crondall type c620 -650 AD -named after the hoard found in 1828. Sent off to the Fitzmuseum Corpus database for recording 1.26g, 11.46mm - 'Witmen type'

    WOW just finished watching the video. You guys were like kids in a candy store over there
    I want to go on one of these trips soooo bad. As for the video there were a few times were I was like "Tilt the camera a bit Sal, I can't see it"
    but over all it was the best video I have seen so far, just loaded with find after find.
    Must suck to have to come back here and dig all this "new" stuff
    Great video, keep them coming!

    I guess I don't have to tell you how rare these are & worth loads of $$$$.

    Thought to have circulated as a Shilling.

    Did you get a export licence for it ok? I guess the BM might like this one.

    Many UK detectorist have searched all their lifes for someone like this & you get it on holiday. You are very lucky & will probably never top it.

    Congrats. very rare coin :P
    Det vi vet er så uendelig lite mot det som har hendt. Arkeologen er som den som går langs en strand og finner småtterier, skyllet i land fra et forsvunnet skib. Men selve skibet som gikk i dypet med menneskene får han aldri se.
