Interesting Metal Detecting Finds
Here is a selection of metal detecting finds and I have also included some finds from other metal
detectorists around the UK that I thought you might like to see.

This Edward III Gold Double Florin was found by a detectorist in the south of England.
Issued in 1343, it was estimated to fetch around £150,000. It is only the third example to be found (the
other two are in the British Museum), so it is also the only one in private hands. The coin was auctioned by
Spinks and achieved a record breaking price of £460,000!
