The Wold Newton Hoard contains over 1,800 Roman coins and was discovered by a metal detectorist near the village of Wold Newton, East Yorkshire, in 2014. The hoard dates to 307AD, a period of great uncertainty in the Roman Empire and Yorkshire. It features coins depicting Constantius and also the first coins to proclaim his son, Constantine, Augustus after he was made emperor in York.
