An Iron Age gold stater, attributed to the Southern tribes of the Atrebates or Regini and dating from c. 60-50 BC. Cf.: ABC no. 485, of 'Selsey Two-face' type (Cottam 2010:47). The face of the coin with 'wreath' design is unclear and the other face depicting a triple-tailed horse right with wheel below and charioteer's arms above has been struck high, eliminating the upper portion of the design. However, the remaining detail suggests that this identification is correct. Where the coin has spread at its circumference it is possible that this has exposed that the coin is in fact …

De Jersey (2015) writes: "It has proved difficult to trace any contemporary, or even near-contemporary record of this discovery. The earliest source to mention the circumstances of the find appears to be the Carlyon-Britton sale catalogue (Sotheby, 17 November 1913), at lots 24, 37 and 49, all of which are described as "Found in a tumulus at Cackham Farm, West Wittering, about 1840". In the second of his two major papers in the Sussex Archaeological Collections, Ernest Willett (1880, 12) had reported that "A coin of this type [Commios] has been found at Cackham, and is in the posse…

De Jersey (2015): "It is impossible to be sure exactly how many coins have been collected from this long stretch of coast, but approximately three hundred can be identified with some confidence today. A few coins had been recorded from Selsey as early as the 1840s (e.g. Evans 1864, 66), but the bulk of the discoveries - made by Ernest Willett's father - took place c.1873, and were published by Willett a few years later (1877; 1879; 1880). Both Evans (1890) and Heron-Allen (1911) relied heavily on Willett's work to produce their own accounts. As Evans reported, it is all but imposs…

An damaged and incomplete Medieval silver halfgroat issued in the reign of an Edwardian monarch. The coin is broken approximately in half; the alignment and jagged nature of the break suggests that this is damage rather than a deliberate cut to change the denomination. The initial mark and the recognition of the first letter in the obverse legend as an "E" suggests that the coin is most probably a halfgroat from the reign of Edward III (1327-1377 AD). Since halfgroats were not issued until the fourth coinage the date can be narrowed to 1351-1377 AD.

A worn Roman copper-alloy coin: a contemporary copy of a mid 1st-century Minerva as of Claudius (AD 41-54). Boon Grade III or IV. Robert Kenyon, following on from the work by the French scholars P-A. Besombes and M. Bompaire (in Trésors Monétaires XXI, 2005), is working through the British examples of Claudian coinage recorded through the PAS assigning many so-called Claudian contemporary copies to Roman auxiliary mints which operated at Lyons (Gaul) and in Spain. This example is a native copy.
