An extremely rare gold coin dating back to the 15th century and worth £15,000 has been unearthed by a metal detectorist who thought it was a bottle top.<br />
<br />
Brian Biddle found the Angel coin - struck during the brief 86 day reign of Edward V who was murdered in the Tower of London - in a farmer's field where it had lain undisturbed for 533 years.<br />
<br />
The land in Tolpuddle, Dorset, had been repeatedly searched over the years by the members of the Stour Valley and Recovery Club before Brian, 64, turned up with his detector machine.
