Silver Coin Brooch

Made of silver and gold gilt. Found by a metal detectorist in Wymondham in 2008, this curious silver brooch was made from an Italian coin, minted in Lombardy between 1236 and 1250.

<p>Unusually, the coin has been punched through the middle to create a ring shape. The silver coin was turned into a brooch and gilt in gold in around 1300. This would be a lovely gift for anyone with an interest in Italian history or with Italian ancestry - as well as local history enthusiasts or even fans of popular TV programme The Detectorists!</p><p><strong>The minimum donation to become a Silver Adopter of this object is £30</strong>.
