Mildenhall: Coin pendant found by metal detector on Suffolk farm ‘is treasure’

A rare coin pendant thought to be only one of three in East Anglia, has been declared treasure.

The pale gold Anglo Saxon shilling was found by Paul Flack who was out using a metal detector on farm land in Mildenhall in February this year, an inquest was told.

Faye Minter, senior finds recording officer with Suffolk County Council’s Archaeological Service, said the coin had been modified for usage as a pendant and dated from around 660-680AD.
