A nummus of the type that weighed 1/96 of a pound. Made between AD 324-330 at the mint in Trier, in modern Germany. This coin was issued at the time that Constantine I had just defeated his rival for power, Licinius I.
RAMM acquired the Seaton Down hoard with help from a generous donation by Patrick and Sally Long, Clinton Devon Estates, Thomson Reuters, Devon County Council and many members of the public. Patrick and Sally Long were particularly keen that the coins are preserved for inspiration and wonder of children. The conservation and display of the hoard and a project to engage with East Devon schools and communities was funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund with further public donations.
