Iron Age and Roman Coins from Wales

Go to resource

This comprehensive database of ancient coins discovered in modern Wales has been created by researchers from Cardiff School of History & Archaeology with funding from the Board of Celtic Studies. The primary objectives of the project were to create an inventory of ancient coins from Wales and to disseminate this body of information to as wide an audience as possible. The dataset currently includes details of 52,813 coins (the vast majority of which are Roman) from 1172 separate finds (these include excavated assemblages, hoards, single finds and indeterminate groups of coins). Using this dataset, it is possible to study ancient coins from Wales by region, locality, ancient settlement or archaeological excavation, and individual coins can be analysed by metal, denomination, emperor or ruler, mint, date of production, and a number of other numismatic criteria.
