Primus Brexitus! - £100,000 gold coin from the first British exit from Europe discovered near Dover<br />
<br />
A lucky detectorist has struck gold after finding <br />
a stunning Roman Aureus of self proclaimed Emperor Allectus, who briefly ruled an independent Britain after it broke away from the Roman Empire in the late 3rd century AD.<br />
<br />
The detectorist found the coin last month near an old Roman road from the seaside town and after notifying the British museum it can now be sold.<br />
<br />
The incredibly well preserved coin is in mint condition looking as fresh as it did when lost over 1700 years ago.
