Beautiful Middlesbrough. To bite the gold

To-bite-the-gold_featured“I want to note something related here. If you ever come across a really old (e.g. ~2000 years old) coin, which appears to be made of gold – whatever you do – do not bite it. Biting is likely to dent such coin, and in the process will both devalue the coin (since the value is historic rather than the metal’s value) and damage an irreplaceable piece of history. Biting found gold coins is a real problem in areas with a long history of gold coin usage.”
