The find has shed new light on British territory and, in the words of numismatic expert Adrian Marsden, is something truly exceptional. A real treasure made up of gold coins. In fact, the Iceni have been great coin producers throughout history.

How old are the pieces? It has been established that their origin dates back to the invasion of the Roman people that took place in 43 AD. Particularly amazing was the perfect state of conservation, so much so that they appeared little worn and with little signs of pecking. This is high purity gold – said the expert.

Archaeologists are confident that there may be other such treasures scattered throughout Norwich. Other coins may appear – said Adrian Marsden. The most striking aspect was not only the quality of the treasure as people were able to recognize the best gold.
