Coins of Carausius used to be quite scarce until they started to be unearthed here, there and everywhere in England. This, of course, is because England was his main base. The latest coin is yet another important coin of this usurper emperor. It is believed to only the second coin of its type and is designated a Find of Note of National Importance.
