Bosworth Field Richard II gold coin

CoinWeek reports that the "Bosworth Field" gold coin bearing King Richard III's coat of arms has sold at auction for £36,000 (over $58,000) at Spinks' ancient coin sale in London, over double the estimated price. The rare gold coin, featuring a royal coat of arms altered to include the boar emblem of Richard III, was found on the battlefield where the ill-fated king was captured and murdered.  It is believed that the coin was lost by a noble who fought in the battle, as it was worth a large sum of money when it was minted.
