COENWULF COIN FETCHES RECORD PRICE

  [Another E-Sylum reader bags a big one!  -Editor]

  "An Anglo-Saxon penny fetched 230,000 at auction
  today - breaking the world record for a British coin."

  "American collector Allan Davisson bought the gold coin,
  found with a metal detector near the River Ivel in
  Bedfordshire in 2001.

  It is the only known coin to bear the name of King
  Coenwulf of Mercia and to show a clear regal design.

  It weighs 4.33g and is similar in size to the modern one
  pence coin."
