Ever wondered how much an Anglo Saxon silver coin would be worth in today’s money? £257 and a little bit of change. That’s based on the £1.35 million value assigned by the Treasure Valuation Committee to a hoard of 5,251 Anglo Saxon silver coins that were found by metal detectorist Paul Coleman in Lenborough, Buckinghamshire in 2014. The coins depict the heads of King Ethelred the Unready and King Canute and originally came from 40 different mints around England. They were found wrapped up in a sheet by Mr Coleman, who is set to share the £1.35 million windfall with the landowner when it is eventually sold. Minted!
