Treasure Blog: Roman Gold Coin Hoard, St. Alban's, UK

Roman solidii, found by a treasure hunter 20 minutes into his very first effort with a metal detector.

Fan's of Paulo Coelho's masterpiece novel The Alchemist will smile, I'm sure:

"That's the way it always is," said the old man. "It's called the principle of favorability. When you play cards the first time, you are almost sure to win. Beginner's luck."

"Why is that?"

"Because there is a force that wants you to realize your Personal Legend; it whets your appetite with a taste of success."
