A metal detectorist kept a Roman coin for nearly 30 years before realising it was worth £10,000.

Retired police officer Tom Thomas, from Reading, made the rare discovery in the 1990s and kept the coin in his small collection.

The hobbyist only realised it was a one-of-a-kind coin when a fellow detectorist pointed out its rarity at a family barbecue.

The 62-year-old said he was "surprised and delighted" by the discovery.

He found the coin, which dates back to 286-93AD, in a farmer's field in Berkshire.
