Quick Quiz #3 – In this year

For many detectorists one of the joys of detecting is the connection with history that their finds brings. In my review of DNW – Coins and Historical Medals – 9 February, there are the stories of two collectors whose interest in coins was sparked by the connection to history.

Drawing on that, in this quiz there are 8 coins that were minted in the same year as significant events in British history. Match the coin to the event.
