County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A gold stater of the Dobunni (Western) dating from c. 20 BC to AD 43. The coin appears to have a high silver content resulting in the dull-gold colour. The coin can be classed as the 'Tree of Life' type, although it is not possible to attribute the coin to a specific ruler and it is possible that the reverse has been struck off flan, resulting in any legend being absent. No direct comparison could be found. ABC 2054-2078.

A gold terminal of an Iron Age torc; the object was found by Dr Hammond whilst metal detecting as part of a survey conducted by SHARP (Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project) as part of their long running study of the history and archaeology of the parish of Sedgeford. See here for more information. This terminal comes from the same Iron Age torc or neck ring discovered in 1965. When the 'Sedgeford Torc' was originally found one of the two terminals was missing. This discovery is almost certainly the missing terminal. It is identical in size and design to the earli…

A very worn, clipped and damaged earlier 17th-century gold post-medieval halfcrown of James I, London mint (1615-1616 AD; North 2095). This coin has been bent and torn as a result of old damage. It has been pierced through the obverse between the inner circle and the bust at around 9 o'clock. The hole is at around 10 o'clock on the reverse. The coin has been examined by the British Museum and, despite the piercing, it was not considered an item of potential Treasure (pers. comm. 8th May 2012).

A gold circular object which is largely diagnostic but may be a fragment of a worked blank for a Centic stater. Both faces are smooth and flat, and the edges are fractured. It weighs 3.94g, and is approximately 50% complete. The diameter is 15mm and it is 3.9mm thick. Ian leins, curator of Iron Age coins at the British Museum, states that: "The weight and size make it a plausible coin-blank...however, in its damaged state it is not possible to accurately judge its full weight and therefore whether it is a blank or not". Therefore, without markings or any other diagnostic informati…
