celtic caratacus goes to the dogs

On November, 15, 2020, in Norwich a unique gold stater of Caratacus was sold by Elizabeth Cottam of Chris Rudd Ltd for a record-shattering £88,000 (hammer price £71,000, estimate £30,000). “This is the highest price ever paid for any Celtic coin anywhere in the world,” says Liz, “and considering the historic importance of Caratacus – Britain’s first famous freedom fighter and first national hero, and considering the uniqueness of the coin – the one and only gold coin of Caratacus ever found – I believe it’s the biggest bargain we’ve ever sold. In my opinion Celtic coins are still widely undervalued.

four month salary in coins found

Had you been a common laborer living in Jerusalem during the transition period between when the city was controlled by the Sunni Abbasid caliphate and the Shiite Fatimid dynasty one gold dinar would likely be the equivalent to a month’s salary. Four of the coins would likely be the monthly salary for a minor official. Finding four such coins today in a small pottery jar while excavating to install an elevator at Jerusalem’s Western Wall would be a delight to Israel’s archaeologists. Such a discovery was announced November 8. The Jewish Quarter Development Corporation had started building an elevator to make the Western Wall Plaza more accessible to visitors when the jug was encountered. Construction plans include an elevator and underground passageway between the Jewish Quarter of the Old City to…

coin repatriated to italy

Perhaps the total number of numismatic objects illicitly in the hands of terrorists, smugglers, or other individuals trying to keep one step ahead of the law is not as large as some publicity suggests. Nonetheless the problem is real. One such example was recently touted on the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement website. In an October 30 statement ICE announced, “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Assistant Director for International Operations Patrick J. Lechleitner, returned two 9th century Italian manuscripts and a Roman coin, a contorniato, during a repatriation ceremony at the Italian Embassy in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. In addition, Ambassador Armando Varricchio for the Italian Embassy in the United States and Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs Mary Royce renewed a memorandum…
