A rare coin was acquired by The Collection, which will soon be available for display at its museum.
The coin was made during the Iron Age as a silver coin made by the Suessiones tribe. The coin has a male portrait while on the reverse has a portrait of a lion seemingly standing over 3 gold collets. There are 3 nice stones to be set on the coin, however, one is missing. It also has a suspension loop above the coin.
The coin was found at Horncastle in 2012 and is now acquired by The Collection at Lincoln. It is indeed an important find as well as a nice addition to knowledge since it represents the conversion of coins to jewellery.
