The C MINT (uncertain location, Britain) mint

Mint: C MINT (uncertain location, Britain)
Abbreviation: C

A second British mint was established during the reign of Carausius (AD circa 286-293). Coins were struck at this mint during his reign and and that of his successor Allectus (AD 293-296). They are distinguished by a C (sometimes read as a G) mintmark. The location of the ‘C mint’ remains a mystery, although the distribution of finds suggests that it is not Colchester (Camulodunum) as most old catalogues suggest.
