24 Jan Eight 6th century gold coins discovered in a potato field near Biesenbrow in Uckermark, northeast Germany. 
The treasure is composed of seven Byzantine solidi and an extremely rare coin bearing an image of the Merovingian King Theudebert I (reigned 533-548 A.D.). The coins are thin and bent, weighing around 4.4 grams each. The standard weight of solidi was 4.5 grams, so despite their bent and curled appearance, they’ve managed to stay remarkably intact. - thehistoryblog.
