Metal detectorist finds historic gold coin in field near Chipping Sodbury

A LUCKY metal detecting enthusiast literally struck gold when he discovered a one-in-a-million medieval coin.

Craig Denney, 50, from Yate, uncovered the rare gold find alongside other medieval coins in a field near Chipping Sodbury.

The ‘gold noble’ coin dates back to around the 1300s and is worth around £2,000.

Craig, a gardener who has been metal detecting for five years, said this was the ‘best find of his life’.

Now the treasure will be given to the British Museum’s Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) for recording as it comes under ‘treasure trove’ classification.
