Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

A gold Early Medieval coin; probably a Merovingian tremissis dating from 500 - 700 AD. It has a diameter of 10.92mm, thickness 1.40mm, weight 1.11g. The design seems too large for the flan, so possibly it was copied from a larger coin of c.20mm diameter. There is a border defined by solid lines on one face, containing curved line, straight lines and pellets. The central motif is an unintelligable group of curved lines and pellets. The other face is weakly struck and possibly bears a crude bust and blundered legend.

A post medieval Venetian coin; a soldino of Agostino Barbarigo (1486-1501) made of an unusual alloy of gold and silver which appears golden coloured instead of the usual silver. This design was used by Barbarigo before he changed over to the new (and much more common) soldino design. However, the style overall is bad, especially the lettering and the mint mark of N over M to the right of the doge is not listed in the detailed catalogue (Barrie Cook pers comm.) This, and the unusual metal suggests that it is some form of contemporary copy or an unknown variety. The coin is discoloured p…

One of the coins is a gold stater of Cunobelin (about AD 10-40). These coins originated in south-eastern England (modern Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and surrounding counties) and were produced in the late Iron Age. They are usually associated with the Trinovantes. Coins of Cunobelin are found over quite a widespread area and it is not uncommon for them to appear as far north as Yorkshire. The second coin is a gold stater inscribed VEP CORF. These were produced in about AD 20-40 in the north east Midlands and are usually associated with the Corieltavi. Stater 1 Gold stater of …

Date: 17th-18th century Description: Small gold posy ring. Inscribed to the interior "No content to your consent", which is followed by a maker's mark comprised of the letter "H" within a rectangular punch. The outer surface has geometric decoration interspersed with heart and floral motifs. Traces of white enamel remain. Discussion: Posy rings were popular love tokens and were often exchanged as betrothal or wedding gifts. They could have plain exteriors or be ornately decorated with enamel, as this example once was. The inscription on this particular ring is puzzling, since it s…
