    Westfront , Copper core This is a good while before the debasement of the coinage , look at the condition !
    if it were debased, it wouldn't look like that !! Silver is a noble metal - in higher purity (like 90 +% ) it is almost
    unassailable by the elements (salt being an exception ) - This denarius is a BANNER find !!! BIGTIME !!!!!

    Man , I am just amazed that this piece is not attracting major kudos already - not to mention BANNER c'mon
    you gotta be kidding me ?? Argentium.

    What would be the value of something like that? It's hard to fathom what something like that is worth, since I've never seen any denarii in any coin stores around these parts...

    When l dug it up there was a lump of green verdigris on the surface which l had to get off.(it must have been next to some copper) and you can see the remains of that. But to answer your question : The coin is all Silver. Thanks for your interest. Hutch.

    You have to remember that the vast majority of members of this forum are from North America. We don't have the frame of reference to truly appreciate a coin such as this. To most of us it is "just another Roman silver". This should take nothing away from the find and it's magnitude.

    Congrats on finding such a beauty!

    Beautiful piece of Silver. (looks out-of-round on the banner ?)

    The workmanship still amazes me from 2000 years ago.

    Congrats to you. As you know most of us are doing good to get silver 1/10th as old.

    In answer to your question, its worth very little, its not that rare (in coin terms) & would only make about 15-20.

    Now, I'm going to make a controversial statement, which I know will not offend the poster but I may get some stick for. This is NOT a banner find in a UK context, however the last Iron Age Silver Unit he posted was over looked. Oh well, enough said.........

    The fact it wasn't a banner coin, doesn't take away from the beauty & overall good condition of this nice early Denarius, of which these chucky Silver coins are another one my fav to find, so it was a joy to see one so early in the year - WELL DONE. Dad & I are still looking for our first this year & it will not be until harvest (I guess) that we 'luck in'!
    TOO BUSY TO DETECT, YOU'RE TOO BUSY!!!

    How do you find Gold coins? Reply: 'By finding lots of Silver ones..'
