Description

Like the yellow petals of the broom plant adorning the cap of the Plantagenets, the powerful immutability of this almost pure gold coin has remained untarnished and unexposed for centuries. That was until a chance signal on Sunday 26 September 2021 rediscovered its beauty, a beauty that has caused a viral media sensation across the globe in the days prior to auction at Spink.

This specially commissioned virtual moving graphic, to be minted into a similarly immutable Hybrid DOT™️, commemorates that unique moment, as the Hemyock soil is finally removed after 765 years to unearth the most important single coin find made in Britain for over a decade, and the first time a new coin of this type has been placed in the archaeological record for almost 260 years. Where once the coin fell from the pocket of Lord of the Manor John de Hidon, it lands in all its beauty not just in our hands but our combined consciousness. And why would our embattled and emboldened King Henry, enthroned for centuries not wish to give us a cheery wink as he is once more exposed to the world?
