 The Le Catillon II treasure is now officially the largest Celtic coin hoard ever discovered
After 30 years of searching one particular field on the Channel Island of Jersey, metal detectorists Reg Mead and Richard Miles  found an enormous hoard of Roman and Celtic coins from approximately 50 B.C. Archaeologists have excavated it from the clay in a solid block, weighing three quarters of a ton.

Here's the giant block of Celtic wealth buried just before Christ was born.
