One of Europe’s largest hoards of Iron Age coins has been unearthed in Jersey and could be worth up to £10m, according to an expert.

The Roman and Celtic coins, which date from the 1st Century BC, were found by two metal detector enthusiasts.

Dr Philip de Jersey, a former Celtic coin expert at Oxford University, said the haul was extremely exciting and very significant.

He said each individual coin was worth between £100 and £200 — via redwolf.newsvine.com
