Nice day out treasure hunting!

A metal detectorist in the UK found this amazing gold coin… Can’t wait to get out there with the team and search full time to find these golden beauties…

The Edward III double florin, known as a double leopard and with a face value of six shillings, was circulated from December 1343 until July 1344.

It is only the third known surviving coin, with two others found in the River Tyne in 1857.
