2,000-year-old Roman gold coin found at Lincolnshire
Archaeologists have found a 2,000-year-old Roman gold coin dating from AD69 at Lincolnshire (UK). Experts say that they are used to finding coins from the Roman period in that location. In fact, they regularly come across copper coins, which were used to pay legionaries their salaries.
