I've unearthed silver treasure (see thread for picture)
One of many many hobbies aside from gaming and painting is the hobby of metal detecting. I thought I'd share my latest find with you. It's 2 silver hammered pennies. (coins)

Edward I (17 June 1239 – 7 July 1307), also known as Edward Longshanks and the Hammer of the Scots (Latin: Malleus Scotorum), was King of England from 1272 to 1307.
   
If any of you remember the film Braveheart. William the 1st was the old king.

Well there's more my first roman coin it's Annia Galeria Faustina, more familiarly referred to as Faustina I (Latin: Faustina Major; born on September 21, in about 100; died in October or November of 140[1]), was a Roman Empress and wife of Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius.

Sorry it's not game related but I thought I'd share my good news.

Very interesting post Trev and thanks for sharing - always got time for a bit of history. So are they classed as Treasure Trove - will you get rich?

BTW - where did you find them?

Pretty cool.

Hopefully next you'll find some Roman Legio IX Hispana coinage...

I've found a gold ring and now hammered coins. I want to find roman coins next!

Nice man are you keeping it or selling to fuel the painting addiction?

I'm going to keep this one but if I find another one then it's going on the market. There's a lot of people out there collecting coins and I'm sure they'd be interested adding one of these ancient coins to their collection.

How deep in the ground were they buried?

Good question! Both coins were about 3-4" deep. (between 8-10cm).
