Virginia Numismatist;Summer2010, Vol. 46 Issue 3, p5
The author reflects on the history of the recovered lost Roman coins in Virginia. He mentions that the detail of coin hoards leads to speculation where the origin can only be stated through the picture of Roman coins. The author states that the four pence of King Henry VIII was considered as the earliest coin found in the country. He notes the need for the collaboration of numismatists and archeologists to interpret the coins which assist on giving evidence about the history of certain events.
