An Anglo-Saxon gold shilling of the 'York' group, type C. The coin is one of 19 known examples of the 'York' group of Gold Shillings. These were struck in the first half of the seventh century, the first coinage ever made in the town of York. Until recently their attribution to a mint in York was uncertain but recent finds, which show a clear Yorkshire focus, have made this attribution very likely. This find from near York would further strengthen this pattern. It would also be the first coin found so close to the mint since the 1840s discoveries of several shillings in the centre …

A pale gold 7th-century Anglo-Saxon shilling modified for usage as a pendant or similar item, c.660-680 AD. It is of Sutherland type II.ii.var: Roman: Constantine (26var) with star-like object on the obverse instead of hand and cross as in Sutherland 26. The coin has been pierced and the remains of a separately cast cylindrical silver rivet are present towards one side of the flan, indicative of modification for usage as something other than a coin. Coins of this period were commonly either looped or pierced for suspension and worn as pendants, and it is likely that the purpose of the…

A gold thrymsa, Crondall phase issue, known as the 'witmen monita' type. The coin belongs to (what seems to be) a later phase of their issue on a smaller flan (c.11.5-12mm) but the same weight (c.1.3g). The reverse legend is a much blundered version of 'WITMEN MONITA'. cf. Crondall Hoard nos. 69-79, especially no. 79 (Metcalf 1993, Thrymsas and Sceattas, pl. I no. 11), and also another in Sutherland's Anglo-Saxon Gold Coinage in the Biblioteque Nationale (Sutherland Pl. IV no. 12). Early to mid 7th century, c. 600-675 AD.

A gold Anglo-Saxon Thrymsa dating c.655 - c.675. The obverse shows a bust right with two symbols in front of the face. The upper symbol appears to be a cross with a line across the base, the lower a large 'Z' reversed. It would seem that the coin was edged on the obverse by a ring of closely set pellets, however more than half of these are missing which is suggestive that the edges of the coin might have been clipped. The body/shoulders of the bust are adorned with clothing or armour shown by the presence of closely set pellets. The bust is shown wearing a tightly fitting hat or …
