An amateur metal detectorist scouring the grounds of a field in Kent has discovered a perfectly preserved  gold coin dating back almost 2,000 years.

It is emblazoned with the face of Emperor Allectu who is being touted as the first Brexiteer after he took Britain out of the Roman Empire during his reign around 293AD.

The 24 carat gold coin, known as an Aureus, is expected to sell for £100,000 ($130,000) when it goes to auction later this year.

An anonymous hobbyist found the coin in a newly-ploughed field near an ancient Roman road in Dover, Kent.
