A builder is celebrating today after unearthing an enormous hoard of silver coins worth £50,000.<br />
<br />
Don Crawley was searching Suffolk farmland with his metal detector when he stumbled upon the buried treasure.<br />
<br />
He dug up 99 silver coins - 81 pennies and 18 cut halfpennies - all dating back to Anglo Saxon England and the reign of King Ethelred II from 978-1016AD.
