Before we go any further, please bear in mind I have only been detecting seriously for several months so my finds pouch isn't very full of interesting items yet. If you aren't excited by these items, tuff, I am and that's what matters to me.

This has been my best Roman coin found so far (ok, so it's only the second Roman coin I have found to date but it's early days yet !).

It's a Trajan silver denarius issued in Rome between AD 101 and AD 102.
