Wickham Market Iron Age coin hoard, dating to AD c. 15-c. 20.

A Late Iron Age coin hoard of 840 gold staters from Wickham Market area, Suffolk. Found on and after March 2008 by the finder; more coins were found during an archaeological excavation of the findspot by Suffolk County Council’s Archaeology Service in October 2008.
The hoard is highly significant as it is the largest hoard of Iron Age gold coins discovered since the Whaddon Chase Hoard (Buckinghamshire) in 1849; unfortunately this find was partially dispersed at the time of discovery, making it difficult to estimate the number of coins found.
