Gerry, it's possible but it isn`t the only coin that has been found. There has been other evidence too. It`s certainly a compelling argument.

It entirely depends on your definition of "very recently". While I'm not an avid coin collector, I did a little research in the past. There is evidence to suggest that Augustus kept a collection of rare and foreign coins - and after that it became a hobby for the rich.

So, if we consider the first century to be "very recent" - and considering the approximated age of the Earth we can - then it is. But if we`re talking about in the scope of human history, the collection of coins is one of the longer lasting hobbies.

Coin collecting did not become an active hobby until very recently. It was not uncommon for Ancient Roman silver and Byzantine gold coins to be in use in Europe and North America into the 18th century. For a 16th century coin to fall from a man's grasp in 18th century Canada is far more likely than for the coin to have fallen there immediately after it was minted.
