Hard to believe that anyone of us could make a find like that, its all a lottery.
To think that beautiful coin never really existed, while buried out of sight and out of mind. Until your Bro had the good fortune to walk over it and reveal it to the world so that we can all enjoy it. Okay, it may end up in a private collection somewhere, but we know now it exists.
Many congrats to your bro ::g.

Apparently 2 bidders were fighting it out. One from America and one from France. It's now back in France were it was probably minted originally.

That's a fantastic outcome for a great coin. 36k is a brilliant price for such a beautiful coin. I believe that the powers that be are considering amending the treasure act to include single gold coins of the Roman and Saxon periods as treasure, I wonder what the valuation would be on this coin in such circumstances. ::g
Wonderful things
