    Small gold wreck coins Identification by diameter

    Anyone know of a website that shows old hammered gold coins by diameter and thickness
    if anyone knows of such a useful resource as I'm fed up "Googling"

    Slightly smaller than a 5p coin. Gold and about half a thick. Ancient at a guess
    bit of a mixed bag.

    Local finds liaison officer for the Portable Antiquities Scheme. Assuming they were acquired legitimately. If not then there's plenty of uncles that know coins and don't ask questions.

    Try your local metal detectorist group, they will be able to identify it for you.

    e.g. Southern Seekers UK Metal Detecting Group
