So I was out detecting on Friday at a park and could not believe what I found. A 1745 shilling. I did a little research and apparently it’s a coin minted from a hoard of silver captured by the Spanish operating over the Pacific Ocean. I don’t know if the coin is worth much but Im just stoked finding a coin almost 300 years old! I tried re-checking to see if their could be more around but no luck. It just boggles my mind when you find nothing but modern coins and garbage for hours and then out pops something like this.
