An Early-Medieval Visigothic 'pseudo-imperial' gold tremissis, dating to the 6th century (pre-580). The type was probably of a type introduced by Theodoric I in 509, based on contemporary Byzantine issues. The coin is closely paralleled by examples illustrated in Grierson and Blackburn (1986, plates 10-11, especially no. 202). Grieson and Blackburn (1986, 48) state: '[The] profile bust of the obverse has a highly devolved cross on the chest, this being one of the most distinctive features separating Visigothic pseudo-tremisses from those of the Burgundians and the Franks. …

Four coins reported found on the site of a previous find of similar coins. These coins are all gold doblas of Peter or Pedro I, King of Castile ('Pedro the Cruel'), who reigned 1350-69. All the coins were struck at the Seville mint, the main mint of Castile. They are of good weight and are in generally good condition, with slight indications of wear, so they have seen some currency. In my report on the previous coins found on the site (December 2005), I made the following comments: 'Gold coins of the 14th century are not frequent finds. We do know from documentary sources that for…
