Any roman coin would do. Just curious where you would go to try and dig one. Naturally it would need to be legal. ;) Be as general or specific as you like. Or perhaps other BCE coins if you think those might be more common. (I'm buying a 45' sailboat and sailing around the world, so i'm making a map of potential spots, heh) Thanks!

Roman coins are usually found in places where the Romans once lived so you can cross places such as Florida and Hawaii off the list of places you may find them. More likely Roman coins can be found in Italy, France, Algeria, Jordan, Greece, Great Britain (South of Hadrian's Wall), Spain, Morocco, Libya, Turkey, Isreal, Syria, Cyprus, etc.
