My interest in ancient coins stems from my love of history. So when the opportunity came to own an interesting historical piece I opened my wallet. So why did I want this ratty old denarius? First of all it gives me a second Tiberius denarius and one I did not have. Second, the posts of all the enablers on here who posted their own “tribute pennies” got me interested in owning one. I am especially thinking of you @Deacon Ray . However, the most important reason is the connection of these coins to an important historical event. In this case it is the revolt of the Iceni against the Romans led by Boudica. Though the literature below says the hoard is only probably related to the revolt, that was enough for me. The thought that this hoard and therefore this coin may be related to such an important figure and such an important event meant that I really wanted one of these coins.They had a number of Iceni coins including 3 of the Norfolk God type. Unfortunately those were all sold before I noticed the sale. However, I am sure I will be happy with the one I chose. I have also ordered a copy of the British Numismatic Journal 86 2016 in which the hoard is published. This is my first coin from a known hoard. Please feel free to post your own hoard coins. From Numismatic News Britain’s “Celtic Coins,” a.k.a. Chris Rudd Ltd., have announced that on Monday, June 4, the firm will be offering for sale coins from the fabled Quidenham hoard via their website: www.celticcoins.com/. The posting is scheduled that morning for 9 a.m. local time. The hoard consists of 22 Roman silver denarii and 25 Icenian silver units discovered at Quidenham in Norfolk, 2014, by a metal detectorist. It is historically important in that it provides a further numismatic link with Queen Boudica’s rebellion against the Romans in 60-61 C.E. Like contemporary known hoards, it is likely it was concealed during the revolt. Among other pieces, it contains three examples of the so-called Tribute Penny, denarii of Emperor Tiberius, all minted at Lugdunum (Lyon) post-14 C.E. Full details of the coins can be found inThe British Numismatic Journal86, 2016. http://www.numismaticnews.net/article/celtic-hoard-to-be-sold-june-4 From Chris Rudd “In 2014 an important Treasure hoard of 22 Roman silver denarii and 25 Icenian silver units was unearthed at Quidenham, Norfolk.
