A “mystery coin” has been found as part of work to reveal the secrets of the world’s largest Celtic coin hoard. The hoard of some 70,000 coins and jewellery pieces was unearthed by two metal detector hobbyists in 2012. Jersey Heritage conservator, Neil Mahrer, is working on separating the coins in full view of the public at the Jersey Museum. He said so far experts had not been able to work out its origins due to an unusual “geometric pattern”.
Coin experts say mystery coin is likely to be Armorican but cannot say any more.
