Rare coin found by detectorist up for auction

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An extremely rare 12th Century silver penny is expected to fetch more than £10,000 when it is sold, according to auctioneers.

The coin, which depicts King Stephen, was found on the Lincolnshire/South Yorkshire border by metal detectorist Graeme Rushton in 2018.

He did not realise what it was until he showed pictures of it to a museum.

It is believed to be one of only 25 known examples of the coin and will be auctioned in September.

We don't hear much about King Steve these days. I bet he's just happy to get a mention.

Given the truly awful reputation his reign gets (and deserves), I bet he prefers silence.
