A lucky metal detectorist has struck gold after a rare Roman coin he discovered sold at auction for more than £550,000.<br />
<br />
The incredibly rare gold coin was found by the unnamed treasure hunter as he searched a newly-ploughed field next to an old Roman road near Dover, Kent.<br />
<br />
The 30-year-old finder thought the coin was fake at first as it was in such good condition. He realised it was genuine when he weighed it at hefty 4.31 grams.
