COIN HOARD

Unique ID: NMS-397D42

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

A coin hoard comprising 44 Iron Age staters of the 'Norfolk Wolf' Uninscribed Icenian JB type. These were found scattered in what appear to have been two groups over a relatively small area, the first group in November 2012 and the second in ?March 2013. If two hoards were concealed, however, these must surely be two part of one main deposit; the two groups of coins share die-links as well as being of the same type.

All of the South Norfolk coins are struck from the same rather pale debased gold, implying a date of production some years after the beginning of the Norfolk Wolf series, probably around the end of the third quarter or beginning of the fourth quarter of the first century BC. The hoard will have been deposited in the late first century BC.

The catalogue incorporates a die study kindly carried out by John Talbot and gives his die combinations for each coin as well as its weight
