Probably the wrong places to post this but here goes. I've recently been lucky enough to find a gold quarter stater, i would very much like to know its modern day equivalent value to iron age man ie what percentage of a week, month or years earnings would it represent. Can anyone suggest a good research platform as i am almost always redirected to coins for sale ans there current value. Also i would be very interested in how many potins/silver units make one gold stater?

Here are 2 options for guaging the modern day equivalent value of old coinage. But obviously they do not go as far back as this lovely coin.

But in a large part it depends on how you want to see the change in value as there are 5 ways to compute the old values to the current ones. This explains it all and gives all the different values.

Cool coin :shock: :Star:

No idea of it’s buying power but it’s super cool! I suspect you might struggle as there are no written records before the Romans so there’s no way you can find out I believe :?
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Nobody really knows the answer to this or even if there is a direct relationship between gold and potin .

To quote our good friend Wiki
" Although potins were around at the same time as the first British gold coins they aren't found together which suggests they served a different role in society."
