Iron Age coin-die found in Hants

An ancient British , used to stamp a horse design on Iron Age gold coins, has been found near Alton in Hampshire.

A member of the public handed it in at the Curtis Museum where it caused huge excitement, with curator, Tony Cross, describing it as “the most significant find in Alton since the discovery of the Alton Buckle some 40 years ago”.

So rare is the die that the British Museum has only ever seen one before.
